Matt Rubinoff, Tusk Global // STACKT
This temporary shipping container market proposes a visionary complex with everything from retail and restaurants to studio spaces and a brewery. What are some of the challenges of bringing an unconventional project to life?
Rui Pimenta & Layne Hinton, Art Spin // IN/FUTURE ART FESTIVAL
This art experience reclaimed a beloved Toronto space, transforming it briefly through a multidisciplinary art and music festival. What opportunities can site-specific events bring to celebrate underused spaces?
Michael McClelland, ERA Architects // PORTLANDS PROJECT
There are many long-term and competing visions for Toronto's Portlands. How do we make best use of this prime city site today? How can short-term planning inform a future agenda and create critical cultural space in the near-term?
