Event Details

 

Join the Toronto Society of Architects’ guided outdoor walking tours and learn about some of the city’s best contemporary architecture. Our highly trained volunteer guides will take you to iconic buildings designed by world-renowned architects and explain the design context, details, and unusual features that make these buildings notable.
