ERA Architects assisted with a recent forum on North York’s modernist architecture, which sought to raise awareness for modernist buildings and landscapes in the city of Toronto. The event included a panel discussion consisting of Dave LeBlanc (Globe & Mail), Leo deSorcy (City of Toronto Planning Division), Kim Storey (Brown and Storey Architects), and Lloyd Alter (Architectural Conservancy of Ontario), and was moderated by Matt Blackett of Spacing Magazine.
ERA contributed to the event by preparing and printing an update to the document North York’s Modernist Architecture put together by the former City of North York in 1997. The update – available here as a PDF file – includes the complete 46 page original document, new essays by the aforementioned panelists, and current photographs of a number of the featured buildings.
Dave LeBlanc also wrote an article in the Globe and Mail about the forum and the republication of the document, which is available on the Globe’s website.
