An exhibition “TOO TALL?” at the York Quay Centre gallery in Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre this fall explores the question “How tall is too tall” for buildings. The exhibit, featuring installations by architectsAlliance, Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects and RAW, will be on until December. In their opening proposition Architects Alliance says, “Toronto will absorb at least 1 million new residents by 2020. Within our lifetime, that figure could easily double or triple. The question, “How tall is too tall?” implies a choice that is not open to us. A complx network of influences beyond our direct control has brought us to the tipping point hwere expanding populations and a changing economy come up hard against limited space and finite resources.”
