Event description

7:00 PM - 10:30 PM | Party!

Toronto's premier celebration of architecture is back, bigger and better than ever!

A long-established tradition, the TSA's annual year-end BASH is an opportunity for the city’s design and architecture community to come together and celebrate in a building that exemplifies design excellence in the city. Festivities begin with architect-led tours of this year’s venue, followed by a lively reception attended by hundreds of members of Toronto’s design community making THE Toronto architecture industry event of the year.


"Here is a fabulous example of the reuse of a derelict building that brings life back to an abandoned area of the city. Re-use rather than tear down is the best starting point for sustainability…"

This year the TSA is delighted to bring our annual celebration of architecture and design to Artscape Wychwood Barns, designed by DTAH Architects Limited and completed in 2008.

A pioneer in adaptive reuse and sustainability, the project transformed an abandoned streetcar maintenance facility dating back to 1913 into a mixed-use centre for artists and environmental organizations housing a series of community spaces, a commercial greenhouse and sheltered garden, 26 live/work housing units, 15 work studios for local artists, a children’s theatre and office spaces for local not-for profits, all surrounded by a new municipal park.

Your support of this event helps the TSA, a not-for-profit, volunteer-led organization, to continue to produce programs that promote and celebrate architecture in the City of Toronto.


We are grateful to our sponsors for their support of TSA BASH 2019! Your generous support allows the TSA to continue to produce exceptional programming promoting architecture and design in the city!

Interested in supporting the work of the TSA while making your brand visible to hundreds of architects across the GTA? We still have sponsorship opportunities available for 2019! See our prospectus for more details.
