MOCA Lounge at Art Toronto

October 27, 2017 - October 30, 2017

In partnership with superkül, MOCA will be sharing proposals for the entry floor landscape of its future home on Sterling Road within a lounge in the SOLO Section of the fair.

superkül’s seating structure responds to the mushroom column heads found in the Auto Building, designed by architect J. W. Schreiber. Erected in 1919, the building continues to be an important early example of flat-slab concrete construction. At the fair, MOCA’s installation will act as a prototype for a circular seating composition that tests form, scale, user-friendliness and flexibility. A key element of the finish, the surface detailing, will be inspired by material textures found inside the heritage building.

Come join the conversation and help select final aspects of the design in the lead up to MOCA’s opening in spring 2018.
