SCREENING + DISCUSSION
Toronto is a city of high-rise residential buildings. Yet, many are aging and in disrepair.
How can we reimagine these buildings as tremendous assets to the city overall
and to the many thousands of people who live in them?
A new NFB HIGHRISE documentary, One Millionth Tower,
explores the power of imagination — and collaboration — to change spaces and minds.
Meet the highrise residents, ERA architects, representatives from the United Way, City of Toronto,
the NFB and the Mozilla Foundation who all worked together
to create the world’s first open-source documentary, One Millionth Tower.
The Atlantic (Cities edition) calls it “surprising and enlightening.”
Join us in a discussion about how we can build a better city, and a better web.
