As part of the RAIC Festival of Architecture 2019, DTAH is excited to be offering a walking tour of Toronto's waterfront revitalization.
Date: Wednesday, October 30
Time: 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM (approximated travel time included)
Join DTAH for a guided walking tour of Toronto’s waterfront, and learn how revitalization efforts are integrating architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design to create a new vibrant downtown neighbourhood destination along Lake Ontario. Led by James Roche and Joe Lobko, the tour will follow the revitalized Queens Quay Boulevard, making stops at Spadina Ave., the Rees and Simcoe WaveDecks, and Water’s Edge Promenade.
These award-winning projects have transformed the industrial waterfront into an active, sustainable place and quintessential destination. The tour will also explore the future of the waterfront, with James Roche discussing DTAH’s current work on the public realm design for East Bayfront and the Port Lands, and Joe Lobko sharing insights into George Brown’s new tall-wood building, The Arbour, for which he was the professional advisor during the international design competition.
