The Festival of Architecture and Design is here again, and the folks at ERA Architects Inc, Spacing Magazine, the Toronto Society of Architects, and [murmur] are throwing the fifth annual Toronto the Good party to celebrate, obviously, the faithful city of Toronto.
This year, Toronto the Good is going to celebrate riders, readers and builders with some very special guests. The Toronto Cyclists Union have teamed up with the Toronto Media Lab to create a participatory installation where party-goers can pedal off their cocktails by riding a stationary bike through projected images of the city when it was younger. Literary contributions include: a Historic Visual Legacy; A Guidebook to Contemporary Architecture in Montreal, and the upcoming guidebook for Toronto. The Toronto Carpenters Union, the folks who build the city of Toronto, are also supporting the evening.
The party’s program also includes the now traditional stickering of the Big Map of Toronto, the announcement of the winners of the TSA’s Green Design Poster Competition, a collection of books by Ben McNally, music by the DJ trio Track Meet (dancing is allowed), and other charming activities. Come out have a drink with people who care about Toronto.
The party takes place tonight, May 19, from 7:00 pm onwards in the Fermenting Cellar at the Distillery District. $10 at the door gets you into the site, plus food and a cash bar.
