Architecture for Humanity Toronto (a4hTO), in collaboration with Design Exchange (DX), is pleased to present a free public
education lecture:

EPISODE I: Toronto Remembered
Mon d a y , 9 February , 2009
6:30 pm
Trading Floor at the Design Exchange,
234 Bay Street , Toronto- Dominion Centre.

Join Chair of the Toronto Society of Architects, Ant o n i o Gomez - Palacio, Professor Emerita and Senior Scholar Frances Frisken of the Urban Studies Program at York University, and Patrick M. Cummins from the Toronto Archives for a fascinating discussion that will explore our past intentions, how closely we adhered to them, how far we departed from them, and what we have potentially gained or lost in the process of constructing our built heritage. The panel will be moderated by John Lorinc , a freelance urban affairs writer and author of The New City .

How have public discussion, criticism and debate affected Toronto’s growth?
How have the city’s communities changed and been changed by Toronto’s developing fabric?

These questions and more will be debated to better our understanding of what Toronto is now, and how we have reached where we are today.

This is the first in a compelling series of 4 lectures entitled the Toronto Trilogy exploring the past, present, and future of this dynamic city. The series features the views and experiences of notable professionals and community members with interest in Toronto’s built fabric, and provides an opportunity for open dialogue about Toronto's identity and future.

There is a suggested donation of $10 to support Architecture for Humanity’s efforts in Toronto.

a4hTO is a division of Architecture for Humanity International, a non-profit organization founded in 1999 to foster architectural solutions to global, social and humanitarian crises. The local chapter is a volunteer organization promoting public dialogue and discussion of issues relating to Toronto’s built environment, while
advocating architectural and design solutions to help build a sustainable and socially equitable environment in Toronto. Our members include architects, planners and designers, as well as activists, students, and concerned citizens from a very diverse
set of backgrounds, brought together by the common goal of securing Toronto's future as a beautiful, livable, and sustainable city.
