Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Historic Preservation Tuesday: Guild Park, Toronto

Toronto's Guild Park features architectural elements as public, outdoor sculpture.  The sculptures have been harvested from demolished buildings.

CARLOS OSORIO, Toronto Star. These pillars from the Bank of Toronto building, built at King and Bay Streets in 1913, are now on display in Guild Park.

See "A stroll through Guildwood is like a ‘walk through history’."
