Remnants of Mid-Century Toronto is a collection of photos by Vik Pahwa — interspersed with short essays and features by local architects — documenting the sometimes beautiful, sometimes neglected collection of mid-century structures that still stand today, dotting Toronto’s urban landscape.
In this unique book edited by Spacing’s Creative Director, Matthew Blackett, readers are not taken on a journey of “best of mid-century architecture.” Instead, the book focuses on the buildings that we see in our everyday activities that often blend into the background of our collective memories of the city. These buildings were built with the ethos of a different generation — seeing them in a contemporary setting allows us to reflect on the legacy of what we’ve inherited as a city.
