Award of Merit – Unbuilt Toronto 2: More of the City That Might Have Been
Author: Mark Osbaldeston
Publisher: Dundurn Press
Mark Osbaldeston returns with a second look at Toronto’s never-realized architectural and master-planning projects. With 150 photographs, maps and illustrations that help the reader imagine how different the city might have been, this book tracks the origins and fates of some of the city’s planning, transit and architectural possibilities. Unbuilt Toronto 2 addresses many aspects of the city’s heritage, and reminds us that the city we inhabit is a result of dreams, debates and choices.
This book was judged to be well-researched and written, accessible, and thoroughly illustrated. One juror described it as a timely reminder that the city we inhabit is built (or not) on dreams, debates, and choices.
