Join us for the 17th annual Doors Open Toronto – presented by Great Gulf
This event offers free and rare access to more than 130 architecturally, historically, culturally and socially significant buildings across the city. More than 30 of this year's buildings are participating for the first time.
The Doors Open Toronto 2016 theme of "Re-used, Re-visited and Revised" explores the adaptive repurposing of buildings throughout Toronto's architectural history.
For the first-time ever, Doors Open Toronto will feature a keynote speaker – acclaimed designer Karim Rashid. With over 3,000 designs in production and more than 300 awards, Rashid is regarded as one of the most prolific designers of his generation. More details about this event will be announced in May.
Other exciting elements offered this year are the themed walking tours sponsored by the Carpenters' Union and activities at City Hall. The tours and the City Hall activities will delve into the stories, histories and rebirth of a variety of Toronto's neighbourhoods.
The popular OpenInsights speaker series returns as well, covering current topics in design, architecture and the revitalization of Toronto.
Doors Open Toronto is produced by the City of Toronto in collaboration with community partners.
