Models and Drawings

Models and drawings of built and speculative work by Polymétis, an architecture and landscape design studio based in Toronto, led by Michaela MacLeod and Nicholas Croft. Exhibited work highlights an interest in experimental material applications, phenomenology, and the fusion of manual and digital means of representation.

Projects include Pink Punch (Jardin de Métis 2012, Grand Métis, Québec), Hotbox (Winters Stations 2015, Toronto, Ontario), IceBox (IceBreakers 2017, Toronto, Ontario), Contour Corridor (Public art proposal 2015, Ancaster, Ontario), and Noisy Water (Public art proposal 2015, Bellingham, Washington).


‘Performance Design’ is an installation exhibiting the work of performance designers who are shaping contemporary performance in Toronto. Delving into each designer’s relationship to text, collaboration, site, and material, this exhibit showcases individual process and wider creative conversations between artists and audiences. Inherently collaborative, ‘Performance Design’ engages space, time, and object to communicate story and create imaginative possibility.

The Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO) is the largest design festival in Canada, with over 100 events and exhibitions taking place across the city of Toronto from January 16-22, 2017. Going into its 7th year, TO DO transforms Toronto into a hub for creativity, taking design and art out of the studio and into the urban sphere, bringing people together to celebrate contemporary culture. We provide opportunities for emerging talent, and engage the community with exceptional and accessible public programming.
