The Greater Toronto Area’s infrastructure and landscape continues to be highly shaped in a close collaboration between Danish and Canadian architects. At this event we will meet five of the leading Danish firms and architects behind these innovative developments along with Toronto based developers, policymakers, influencers and experts for a thought provoking and forward thinking series of panel discussions.
The discussions will focus on: Waterfront revitalization; Active Urban Space; and Innovation.
With opening remarks from HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, Danish Minister, Chief City Planner and local dignitaries, this event will allow for a deeper dive into how Danish architecture in partnership with Toronto based companies, can approach some of the GTA’s biggest urban challenges.
