ERA Architects is helping out with an upcoming forum on North York’s modernist architecture that is taking place this Tuesday evening at the North York Civic Centre. The forum focuses on raising awareness for modernist buildings and landscapes in the city. The event includes 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). The discussion will be moderated by Matt Blackett of Spacing Magazine.
We will be contributing to the event by printing an update to the document, North York’s Modernist Architecture, put together by the City of North York in 1997. The original document was developed to underline the importance of modernist buildings, and many that were featured found their way onto the City’s Inventory of Heritage Properties. The updated document – available exclusively at the forum – will include the original in addition to new essays by the featured panelists and current photographs of a number of these buildings.
