Design Exchange

The Design Exchange is the national research and exhibition centre for design and design industries in Canada. It is located in the former Toronto Stock Exchange in the heart of the financial district. It is a provincially designated heritage building and the finest example of Art Deco architecture in the city. The Trading Floor is the facility’s main exhibition room and is equipped with retractable seating for theatre-style events. There are a number of other smaller exhibit and program rooms throughout the facility.

We designed a comprehensive, inter-connected information technologies system including: building wide audio, video, data, and communications networks.  We also designed all the electronic presentation systems for the Trading Floor, exhibit areas, and meeting rooms.
