ERA is pleased to announce that this summer spacing.ca will be republishing several articles from our book, Concrete Toronto: a guidebook to concrete architecture from the fifties to the seventies.
The book, published by Coach House Books in 2007, reconsiders Toronto’s large inventory of concrete buildings and infrastructure from the perspective of a diverse group architects, city planners, academics, historians, and journalists.
A number of Concrete Toronto articles will be republished as an online supplement to Spacing Magazine’s summer issue “Toronto Modernism: Stop the Hate!” The magazine advocates taking a closer look at our modernist heritage, and asks that we reevaluate and learn to take care of it as our city matures.
To view this series, go to spacing.ca.
To buy the book, please visit Coach House Books.
