More from the Bhayana Family Foundation Awards


And the Bhayana Family Foundation Award for Community Partnership goes to….The Community Design Initiative (East Scarborough Storefront-Tides)!

The Community Design Initiative is a truly unique and inspiring collaboration between architects, artists, urban planners, academics, Storefront agency staff and residents of Toronto’s Kingston-Galloway Orton Park community. This diverse group of partners joined forces to re-imagine Storefront’s interior and exterior spaces. This incredible collaboration has transformed the agency—and the neighbourhood—by creating community, recreational and green spaces.
