Beginnings of Post Modernism in Toronto: John Sewell

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.
