Dear Torontonians,

The Festival of Architecture and Design is here again, and the folks at ERA Architects, Spacing Magazine, Toronto Society of Architects, Heritage Toronto, Wireless Toronto, and [murmur] have come together to throw the fourth annual Toronto the Good party to celebrate our city.

This year, Toronto The Good wants attendees to explore an idea: planners, architects, developers, and interested residents from around the world are using a new tool – the urban centre – to educate the public and debate local development issues. Cities such as London, Amsterdam, New York, Chicago, and San Francisco have a place for the masses to come and learn about how their metropolis has grown and where it is headed.

Does Toronto need a similar centre? If so, what should it do and where should it be located? At the event, we want you to talk to your friends and colleagues, and even strangers, about your thoughts on this topic.

The party’s programme includes the now traditional stickering of the Big Map of Toronto, the results of TSA’s annual poster design competition, the last of Ballenford Books’ Toronto postcard series, a public text message display created by Wireless Toronto’s offshoot Toronto Media Lab, background but danceable music by the DJ trio Track Meet, and other charming activities. Come out May 27th to have a drink with people who care about your city.
