“A glass brick can be transparent, translucent and opaque. It can admit light while protecting privacy. It can sparkle and refract in the daylight and glow from within at night. The lightness and luminosity of the glass brick provides the urban mountain range with the glacial lightness of an iceberg.”

— BJARKE INGELS

HOW DO WE USE ARCHITECTURE TO CREATE COMMUNITY?

JOIN US FOR A SERIES OF EVENTS & DISCUSSIONS HIGHLIGHTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF KING WEST

Can a city densify without losing its quality of life and connection to nature?

How do we revisit the industrial aesthetic and heritage of historic Toronto?

Can we curate a collection of beautiful, furnishings for each home?

Join us April 1 - 5, for an exhibition celebrating the details of KING Toronto, a collaboration between Allied, Westbank and global architectural innovator Bjarke Ingels.

Exploring KING highlights the unique design of KING Toronto, and the evolution of the King West Neighbourhood. This project and this conversation are among the ways we are helping contribute to a dialogue around urbanism and the opportunities of using architecture to create community in Toronto, a wonderful city that is considered amongst the most vibrant in the world today. The result is the new architectural character of KING Toronto - inspired by the past, informed by the present and aspiring towards the future.

Thank you for registering your interest.

We see our projects as active engagements with community, as part of a dialogue between what is built, the place where it is situated and the people who live there. Our projects are conceptualized and designed with an awareness of a much larger urban narrative. We look forward to sharing more information about King Street and continuing the conversation around urbanism in Toronto.
