About Doors Open

The 18th annual Doors Open Toronto presented by Great Gulf returns offering free and rare access to 150 architecturally, historically, culturally and socially significant buildings across the city.

In celebration of Canada's 150th birthday, this year's event features more than 150 buildings representing each decade since the 1860s, as well as a collection of buildings from the pre-Confederation era.

The Doors Open Toronto 2017 curatorial theme Fifteen Decades of Canadian Architecture shines light on the evolution of Canadian architecture, with a special focus on Centennial-period buildings and architects from the 1960s. http://www.toronto.ca/doorsopen
