Building a Better Tomorrow: The Schools of the Toronto Board of Education 1950-1965
Faced with the Baby Boom, the Toronto Board of Education undertook a massive construction program during the 1950s and early 1960s. Board architects Frederick Etherington and Peter Pennington created new school buildings based on Modernist design principles. Today, many of these now-historic schools are in need of renewal and at risk for redevelopment. How can they be preserved?
Robert Moffatt is the author of Toronto Modern, a primary online resource for Toronto’s heritage Modernist architecture. He is a marketer for architecture and design firms.
