Architecture in Toronto

BY SHAWN MICALLEF
@ VOL 11 ON NOV 03, 2011

Shawn Micallef analyses the often derided architecture of Toronto, and its mixture of modern and antique buildings, usually adjacent or actually encroaching on one another. He makes the argument that, while traditionally beautiful cities like Paris or Prague may retain a romanticized image, Toronto's lack of boundaries when it comes to maintaining a determined style allows it to experiment and create much livelier streets and sprawls.
