A downtown alley might not be the first place you would look for the makings of a five-star resort, but ThunderEgg Alley is exactly that.

Informed by the abundant waste of our consumer-driven economy, ThunderEgg Alley exploits the natural landscape of Toronto's refuse, transforming the material excretions of everyday life into abstract mechanisms of luxury. Visitors will have the unique opportunity to indulge in a dumpster diver's paradise, complete with a spa, tanning salon and cardboard box boutique.

In association with Zimmerman Freshmart.
