TSA Architects Talk: Renewal

Our cities are at a turning point. The last two years have laid bare many of the social, cultural and economic inequalities, injustices and imbalances deep-seated into our institutions and structures. The climate crisis continues to accelerate, affecting not only humans but all living creatures. Change is necessary. We must reconsider our engagement with our built environment, streets, heritage and history, and natural systems—renewing existing relationships and forging new ones. We know business as usual will not deliver the just and equitable city we are striving for. But how do we translate our aspirations into the built environment?

On this return of Architects Talk, we invite 5 speakers, from architects to cultivation activists and community organizers, to share with us the work that must be done to close the gap between the city we have and the one we desire.


This event is a partnership between the Toronto Society of Architects and the City of Toronto and hosted by The Bentway as part of Doors Open Toronto 2022.
