Architecture Tours

Toronto boasts a world class mix of both heritage and modern architecture designed by local and internationally acclaimed architects like Mies Van der Rohe, Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind, Will Alsop, Diamond & Schmitt and KPMB to name a few.  Join the Toronto Society of Architects’ guided outdoor walking tours for a 2 hour journey past some of Toronto’s most iconic architecture. Our professionally trained volunteer guides will share the design context, details, and unusual features that make these buildings notable and demonstrate why architecture is such a powerful communications tool for businesses, organizations, and the city.

Each of these tours showcases a carefully curated selection of modern and contemporary buildings and landscapes around a theme, neighbourhood or area.
