about this item
Discover the city in all its many guises with this authoritative architectural guide, newly updated and expanded.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.
