How should appropriate building height be determined within the city?
Does tall matter if the streetscape is successful?
How can Toronto neighbourhoods be redefined vertically?

As cities focus on increasing density in urban cores as an alternative to suburban sprawl, the persistent question is “How tall is too tall?” Environmental concerns push architects to build taller, yet respect for the surrounding neighbourhood grounds many tall projects. How do architects manage these often contradictory imperatives? Do we build for the present or the future?

architectsAlliance, Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects and RAW explore this idea through three new installations. Visual artist Douglas Walker also contributes to this exhibition.
