What Canada's lost buildings can teach us about history, the drawbacks of urban renewal and who the heritage movement forgets
In their new book 305 Lost Buildings of Canada, Montreal illustrator Raymond Biesinger and Toronto architecture critic Alex Bozikovic unearth the history and design of memorable buildings across the country that no longer stand. From churches and warehouses to nightclubs and post offices, Biesinger and Bozikovic tell Helen Mann why these buildings matter beyond their bricks and mortar... and what they reveal about the tension between preservation and progress in the push toward urban renewal.
