Spacing's School of Urbanism
Day-long workshops on emerging trends

Spacing magazine is proud to announce the launch of the Spacing School of Urbanism, four one-day city-building workshops that focus on an issue challenging the residents and urbanists of Toronto.

Each workshop provides unique continuing education and professional development to Greater Toronto-area architects, planners, urban designers, developers, real estate agents, and city-builders seeking to broaden their knowledge of emerging trends in urbanism.

Interactive workshops have been co-developed by Spacing and Swerhun Facilitation with advice from academics, practitioners, and other local thought leaders. Our workshops are led by city-builders that will engage participants in a thought-provoking, full-day training session.

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Laneway Housing has been described as a potential solution to some of Toronto’s housing challenges.

Adding density to otherwise low-density neighbourhoods, creating more affordable housing, and making better use of parts of the city are just some of the benefits identified by Laneway Housing advocates.

For a long time, City of Toronto by-laws all-but restricted Laneway Housing, but now, after years of advocacy from both within and beyond City Hall, the City has adopted new rules to enable and guide Laneway Suites.

This component of the Spacing School of Urbanism curriculum is dedicated to exploring Laneway Housing.

Participants in the Spacing School of Urbanism Laneway Housing Workshop will:

  • Learn about the history of Laneway Housing in Toronto, including the policies that previously limited the development of Laneway Housing, the history of advocacy around this kind of development, and what changed to enable new Laneway Housing policies and by-laws.
  • Hear from the City of Toronto about some of the highlights about its recent Laneway Suites policies (including some of the challenges that needed to be addressed in developing the policies), which kinds of Laneway Housing are now permitted, which are not, and what is next for City policies around this type of housing.
  • Hear from Laneway Housing advocates, including some of the key issues that drove their advocacy, what they like about the City’s recent Laneway Housing-supportive policies, and where they would like to see things go from here.
  • Hear from architects and developers with experience in developing Laneway Housing, including some of the opportunities, challenges, and successes they have experienced.
  • Participate in facilitated, interactive discussions that enable participants to ask (and answer) questions, explore ideas, and connect Laneway Housing to their own work.
