Toronto 2015 World Expo

Toronto 2015 World Expo

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

An intensive study and conceptual design plan for a major global event.

To help the Toronto Ontario Canada World Expo Corporation make informed decisions, Perkins Eastman conducted a site and operations plan study for the pre-bid of the Toronto 2015 World Expo project. Taking into consideration the critical success factors of the corporation’s vision for the expo—creating an inspiring and memorable experience for visitors, providing a showcase for cultural diversity, and offering platforms for cross-cultural exchange—the study included plans for each of the three shortlisted sites identified in a previous feasibility study. The team evaluated each site according to regional, contextual, and operational criteria including the availability of land easily accessed by transit and legacy opportunities and ultimately provided conceptual designs for the preferred location.
