Exploring KING Toronto

Today I stopped by the Exploring KING exhibit that is currently on at 134 Peter Street. It is an exhibition celebrating the design of KING Toronto.

It explains how the design came about. Note all the different unit layouts on the floor.

It includes (foam) study models that go as far back as 2015. That’s four years of design iterations.

It has samples of the glass blocks that will be used on the building’s facades.

It has a VR setup that allows you to explore the building’s inner courtyard. It’s going to be a fun space.

And there’s even a KING Toronto candle for sale. (Aromatic woods with spicy overtones.)

I thought the overall exhibition was very well done and I am thrilled to see architecture and design so front and center. It is an exciting time to be living in this city.
