Due to the current lockdown in Toronto, this exhibition will not be open during the DesignTO Festival. It will open at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura when public health guidelines permit. You can view a virtual version of the exhibition here.

The Istituto Italiano di Cultura in Toronto is pleased to present the exhibition ‘Emerging’ Ecologies, the latest installment in the ‘Italy Under Construction’ series. The show features a selection of eight built landscape projects from Italy and Canada that show how public agencies and designers are working together to carve out ecologies in our dense urban environments. Building on a new understanding of cities as interconnected ecosystems, the eight projects, organized in four sections—infrastructure, landform, post-industrial regeneration, and waterfront—offer successful examples of adaptive reuse of sites in Caltagirone, Kingston, Milan, Montreal, Toronto, Turin, and in Venice.
