Coach House Books and ERA Architects are pleased to announce the receipt of a Canadian Council for the Arts Grant for their upcoming publication Concrete Toronto. Dedicated to the plentiful yet often misunderstood concrete structures from the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s which define much of Toronto today, this publication re-examines this unique heritage and contemplates concrete’s role in shaping our city.
For release in the fall of 2007, the collection includes the insights of many of the original architects, today’s leading engineering firms, industry, university faculty, local practitioners and journalists. Including new and archival photographs, drawings, interviews, articles and case studies, Concrete Toronto celebrates architecture, and celebrates concrete!
