The Festival of Architecture and Design is here again, and the folks at ERA Architects Inc, Spacing Magazine, Toronto Society of Architects and [murmur] are throwing the fifth annual Toronto the Good party to celebrate me, your faithful city.
This year Toronto the Good is going to celebrate my riders, readers and builders with some very special guests. The Toronto Cyclists Union have teamed up with theMedia Lab Toronto to create a participatory installation where partygoers can pedal off their cocktails by riding a stationary bike through projected images of me when I was younger. Literary contributions include a Historic Visual Legacy and A Guidebook to Contemporary Architecture in Montreal and the upcoming guidebook for Toronto. The Toronto Carpenters Union, the folks who build me, are also supporting the evening.
The party’s programme also includes the now traditional stickering of the Big Map of Toronto, a collection of books by Ben McNally, music by the DJ trio Track Meet (dancing is allowed), and other charming activities. Come out May 19th and have a drink with people who care about me.
