We are pleased to announce that ERA will be participating in Grow Op: Exploring Landscape and Place, a special four-day event and exhibition to be held in late at Toronto’s Gladstone Hotel April 25-28, 2013.
The exhibition, curated by landscape architect Victoria Taylor OALA CSLA, will involve a wide range of interdisciplinary practices and creative positions on landscape, gardens, city, and place. Please keep an eye out for news on this exciting event as we approach the date.
As an aside, in the process of discussions with the Gladstone, we were reminded of a project from years ago: an installation by ERA’s Michael McClelland and Philip Evans called Room for a Bungalow. To see this project, please see the Gladstone archive.
Monocle Radio recently interviewed ERA’s Graeme Stewart on The Urbanist, a weekly program on the people and ideas that shape urban life. In this week’s edition, Andrew Tuck speaks with Graeme about Toronto’s modernist legacy and the Tower Renewal program.
