live/work artist space: Wychwood Barns

had a great time visiting Artscape's Wychwood Barn project last week, for my Habitats column at blogTO.

i dropped by a year ago & had doubts that the building would be ready for residency in November...
but in fact--despite a few changes to the architect's plan due to budget shortfalls--the Barns are great. with The Stop's food program, the Saturday market, LEED certification, and some good art events, they're really living up to their environmental & community commitments. my only quibble: the one-room live/work studios are VERY small.
