Toronto has been hailed as "the city that works," "the livable city," and a "world-class city." But just what does Toronto look like? And what can the changing image of the city tell us about Toronto's past -- and its future?
Twenty-two self-contained walking tours -- each with an easy-to-follow map -- range over 175 years of Toronto buildings. More than 900 buildings are catalogued- fanciful Victorian houses, graceful spired churches, lush Edwardian factories and warehouses, Art Deco apartments, and new landmarks. Illustrated with over 300 photographs, the guide examines well-known and important buildings as well as the more modest structures in between that form Toronto's cityscape.
The original edition of Toronto Architecture- A City Guide by Patricia McHugh is fully revised and expanded by architecture critic Alex Bozikovic. Complete with an illustrated description of Toronto styles, a glossary of architectural terms, and a biographical index of architects, this is the definitive reference to Toronto's buildings -- old and new.
