Visiting Info

This is the first time that this international event has come to North America and with it comes inspiration, education and networking with building industry professionals from Toronto and all around the world. As we reach the pinnacle of energy efficiency, come see what’s next in high performance buildings as we explore people centric design.

Evergreen Brick Works is a place where the world can experience sustainable practices that enable flourishing cities of the future.

In 2010, Evergreen transformed a collection of deteriorating heritage buildings into a global showcase for green design and an award-winning public space. Open year-round, Evergreen Brick Works welcomes more than 500,000 visitors annually to experience its public markets, participate in conferences and events, enjoy outdoor learning and nature play, and explore public art in the heart of Toronto’s ravine system.

Throughout the campus, you can experience new practices that challenge the way we live in cities: Ideas you can contribute to and take home. Evergreen Brick Works is a dynamic hub that connects citizens, business, academia and government in order to shape our cities for the better.
