A Gem of Exposition Architecture
The Beanfield Centre is a heritage building on the grounds of Toronto’s Exhibition Place, combining history and state-of-the-art technology. The 160,000 square foot facility incorporates today’s most advanced technological innovations while remaining respectful to the historical aspects of the former Automotive Building.
Builtt in 1929 at a cost of 1 million dollars, the Automotive Building, an Art Moderne pavilion featuring open, fluid spaces, was described by Sam Harris, then President of the Canadian National Exhibition, as “a gem of exposition architecture.” The building frames the famous Exhibition Place Princes’ Gates and boulevard, and is highly visible from both the Exhibition Place grounds and the lakefront.
In 2009, the Automotive Building underwent major renovations and is now a state-of-the-art conference facility and one of Canada’s first LEED Silver Certified Conference Centres.
