Beginnings of Post Modernism in Toronto


John Sewell, former Mayor of Toronto and author of “How We Changed Toronto, 1969 – 1980,” will speak on the beginnings of post-modernism in Toronto. City Council’s reform movement in the 1970s questioned modernist urban renewal and began the heritage movement in Toronto. Today, new development could draw on these examples to respect existing communities, increase densities, and provide attractive affordable housing to complement existing built form.

All lectures take place in room 610 in 155 College Street, the University of Toronto Health Sciences building. Entry is free or pay what you can. Please visit
