Architecture and Design Gallery

The Architecture and Design Gallery, a unique new space in the lower level of the Daniels Building, is dedicated to showcasing and advocating for the important ways that design shapes our cities, landscapes, and daily lives. Its exhibitions and installations will explore and promote experimental and prescient forms of contemporary architecture and urbanism — in all their artistic, scientific, and cultural dimensions.

Located on a landmark site in Toronto, at the nexus of one of the world's leading research universities and a thriving downtown creative sector, this flexible 3,000-square-metre facility — the only one of its kind in Toronto — will harness a rich network of local and international collaborators. The Gallery will also draw on the talents of the Daniels Faculty and U of T’s remarkable community of scholars, urbanists, students and design professionals to test ideas, provoke needed debate, and foster a deeper understanding of the role design plays in imagining and building a better world.

Capital support of the Architecture and Design Gallery is provided by the Estate of James Drewry Stewart.

This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.

Exhibition support is provided through the Lorne M. Gertner Fund.
