ABout the Hoarding Exhibit

Artist Erica Brisson walked around Lawrence Park in summer and fall of 2020. Along the streets and in the parks, she saw a steady stream of people, families, children, and pets. Some were exploring, taking photos and enjoying quiet moments, while others were chatting, running errands and popping into shops. At a time when there was so much that couldn’t be done, it was a joy to see people exploring, moving about and connecting. This exhibit explores and cherishes public spaces handed down from the past, and making a neighbourhood their own.

About the development

The Winslow is a nine-storey boutique residence with a collection of sixty-eight spacious homes. Located in the Lawrence Park South Neighbourhood, The Winslow is connected to the natural landscape, framing terrace views to the surrounding leafy streets and ravine system. It also meant designing residences for our neighbours, with a limited number of spacious suites boasting sophisticated finishes that embody a sense of understated elegance. The intention behind The Winslow is to integrate seamlessly into the Lawrence Park community; like it was always meant to be there.
