TORONTO – On Sunday May 26th, Diamond Schmitt Architects opens its doors to the public with a full day of programming as part of Doors Open Toronto presented by Great Gulf, the largest architecture event in the city.

A series of ten presentations by architects will take place throughout the day highlighting current projects and timely topics on building design. This year’s Doors Open theme recognizes the event’s 20th anniversary and our talks will reflect the changing architectural landscape of Toronto past, present, and future.
