Doors Open Toronto presented by Great Gulf at The Bentway

May 25 @ 12:30 pm - May 26 @ 5:00 pm

Doors Open weekend will include a panel discussion bringing together established Toronto city-builders in conversation with up-and-coming diverse and millennial voices to explore how Toronto has evolved into a new version of itself through critical projects that embody how “we shape our cities and our cities shape us”. Included in this panel is Ken Greenberg, who will read from his new book "Toronto Reborn: Design Successes and Challenges", where he describes the process of change through a number of noteworthy “works-in-progress”, such as Regent Park, The Bentway, Wellington Place, Project Sidewalk, and more.
