The following series of analytical maps were developed over the last several years in partnership with the University of Toronto, ERA Architects and the City of Toronto, in an ongoing effort to understand Toronto’s heritage of modern planned apartment neighbourhoods, and their evolving relationship to our dynamic city.

Beginning July 3rd, selected maps will be on display as part of Fringe Benefits at the Design Exchange; an exhibit curated by the Editor of Canadian Architect, Ian Chodikoff.
