Harbourfront features Building for the Economy

Among the art highlights this summer at Toronto’s Harbourfront is “Building for the Economy”, displaying installations featuring a response to architecture in conjunction with the current economy.

Canada’s AGATHOM Co., Breathe Architects and Lapointe Architects were invited to create installations in response to building and design practices in the face of global economic realities.

The exhibition, called Building for the Economy, also features Home Economics, a textile-based installation by former Craft Studio artist-in-resident Thea Haines.

The gallery’s aim is to show exhibitions which will educate, challenge and question thoughts and ideas surrounding modern and contemporary architecture.

BUILDING FOR THE ECONOMY
Saturday 27 June 09 — Monday 7 September 09
FREE Public Opening Reception:
Friday 26 June 09 | 6pm – 10pm
