Toronto’s largest constructed breakwater is literally built of rubble from the demolished walls of its lost architectural heritage. To see this place as a burial ground provides a moment to mourn our losses. Yet to celebrate it as the material evidence of Toronto’s dramatic post-war urban reconstruction is an opportunity to rediscover the transformation of lake fill into a landscape.
