"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"--Provided by publisher.
