Architecture and Design Gallery

NOTE: After a prolonged closure due to COVID-19, the Architecture and Design Gallery has reopened with a new exhibition, Housing Multitudes: Reimagining the Landscapes of Suburbia. All members of the public are welcome to visit. See Gallery hours below.

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, the Architecture and Design Gallery, a unique space on the lower level of the Daniels Building at 1 Spadina Crescent, is dedicated to showcasing the important ways that design shapes our cities, landscapes and daily lives.

The exhibitions and installations in this flexible 7,500-square-foot facility — the only one of its kind in Toronto — explore and promote experimental and prescient forms of contemporary architecture and urbanism in all their artistic, scientific and cultural dimensions.

In the process, the Gallery harnesses a rich network of local and international collaborators, as well as 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.
