What are the key design issues that face our city? What are the trends and challenges of Toronto now and in the future? Join us for this very special TSA IDEAS Forum as members of Toronto’s four active Design Review Panels (City of Toronto, Waterfront Toronto, Metrolinx, and Toronto Community Housing) share with us their ideas and reflections on our city.
What is a Design Review Panel?
Design Review panels are independent advisory bodies comprised of design professionals - architects, landscape architects, engineers, urban designers and planners – that provide independent, objective advice on matters of design that affect the public realm. Their aim is to advocate for the highest quality of design for the citizens of Toronto in the built environment.
