Check out photos from Card-Yard 2014 here!
On July 21-22 PULP: Reclaimed Materials Art and Design, in collaboration with Senayah Design, Arup Engineering, and Architecture For Humanity Toronto was given the three tennis courts at the corner of Bloor and Dufferin. Check out this photo essay to get a feel of how much fun we had.
Pavilions stood one night and two days before being taken apart. All fabrics and plywood joints, and some of the tubes were kept after deconstruction for future use.
Special thanks to the event sponsors, Castle Point Realty Partners, and to Fabric Fabric and CNC-cutting for providing excellent service and advice. We are grateful to Alexanian Flooring Limited and Shnier Gesco Limited Partnership for providing us with all the cardboard tubes! Also, our extreme gratitude to Arup Engineer, Maria Mingallon, for lending her time and expertise, and to Dufferin Mall for helping us with materials and transportation – we love you all!
Extra special thanks to the dedicated team of volunteers who worked specifically on this project: Ksenija Spasic, Alisdair MacRae, Graham Brindle, Pamela Cottrell, Goldie Keshavarz, Bardia Sinaee, Jess Taylor, Tanya Decarie, and again to Architecture For Humanity Toronto, BIG on Bloor, and Toronto School of Art without whom we would never have been able to make all this happen!
