If you have not been out to see the Toronto of the Future exhibition in the rotunda at Metro Hall yet, you have two more days to do so, with the space open as of 9 AM both Thursday and Friday, and until 9 PM on Thursday, but only to 5 PM on Friday. The exhibition brings together the renderings and scale models of buildings under construction, in planning, and simply envisioned for Toronto, along with videos and giant model of the core of the city itself by Hariri Pontarini Architects.
There are quite a lot of building designs to see at the exhibition, and other presentations about designing for Toronto's future itself. UrbanToronto's contribution to the exhibition is an update of our March and April front page stories listing the Top Ten Tallest buildings currently under construction in the city, and the Tallest proposals, either already approved or going through the process at City Hall now.
A second space in the winter garden lobby of 225 King Street West contains more exhibits, including that from ZAS Architects, seen below.
One of the exhibits in this space is by WZMH Architects, and it includes an envisioned 100-storey tower rising on the Redpath Sugar lands. The design is no more than some blue-sky dreaming, but it's meant to provoke Torontonians to dream a little more about their city too. What more can we aspire to here?
Have you been to the exhibition? You can read up on the discussion in our Forum thread for the exhibition here, or add your comment in the space provided at the bottom of this page.
