Public spaces are a reflection of our time. Every generation has had a different approach to building the public realm. This is especially true in Toronto—from the gardens built by loyalists to the civic squares of the 1960s to the commercial plazas of previous decades. Today, Toronto is once again reinventing public space. The waterfront. Streets. Plazas. Parkettes. Parklets. Parks over railroads. Parks under expressways. These are a testament to a city that continues to evolve and a public that pours out of its newfound density in search of the commons.

Tour Cost: US$125 per person, which includes lunch.
