This Middle city passages toronto – international competition now is over!

Middle City Passages Toronto is a dual phased international architecture competition, part of the IVM international program "Passages, transitional spaces for the 21st Century." Toronto’s competition is organized by Metrolinx and the University of Toronto’s John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design in partnership with the City of Toronto.


The Middle City Passages Toronto architecture competition is an opportunity to investigate how new transit infrastructure along Sheppard East might interweave with existing local, small-scale pedestrian networks. It is also a chance to test how forging connections between local paths and transit infrastructure can further support development and improve local living conditions. Can the design of new types of passages aid in producing a more urban condition in suburban Toronto?
The jury includes Henri Bava, Andres Borthagaray, Mirko Zardini, Marcel Smets, Richard Sommer… There is no entry fee for this architecture competition!

It's free to enter!

The selected teams will receive an honorarium of CA$1,000 for participating in a workshop in Toronto to elaborate their ideas and produce strategic projects with the assistance of local and international coaches. Travelling expenses will be covered up to a value of CA$3,000. The prize-winning team will be retained as a special advisor to Metrolinx’s Senior Manager of Design Excellence to advance the design of walking and cycling access to transit stations and corridor rapid transit projects up to a value of CA$25,000.
