Doors Open Toronto 2023: Open Studio

Ever wondered what an architect’s studio looks like?

This Doors Open weekend (May 27-28), architectural practices across Toronto are opening their doors and inviting you to come drop by!

Come meet the people behind our built environment and talk to the architects, landscape architects, planners and interior designers helping shape our city. Explore their workspaces, ranging from converted garages to heritage properties and community hubs, and see how buildings and landscapes go from ideas to built realities.

For 2023, we have a fantastic line up of studios working across a wide variety of projects and specialties! In addition to self-guided walks through the offices, many of the studios are offering talks throughout the weekend. Click on the map below to learn more about the participating studios, which days they will be open and what you can expect when you visit. You can also click on their logos below to visit their websites and see their work!
