Concrete Toronto Wins Heritage Toronto Award

Heritage Toronto has announced the recipients for the 24th Annual Heritage Toronto Awards. In the Book Category, Concrete Toronto: A Guidebook to Concrete Architecture from the Fifties to the Seventies (Coach House Books/ E.R.A. Architects), edited by Michael McClelland and Graeme Stewart, received the Award of Excellence. The jury stated that Concrete Toronto “encapsulates the architecture that many of us grew up with. In the 1960s and 1970s, these concrete buildings were the essence of Toronto. Many of these concrete structures will now need our protection to survive, and the book clearly advocates for their importance and preservation. Concrete Toronto is well designed and rich in detail, with many contributions from the heritage community.”

The Great Adventure: 100 Years at the Arts & Letters Club (The Arts & Letters Club of Toronto) by Margaret McBurney and I've Got a Home in Glory Land: A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad (Thomas Allen Publishers) by Karolyn Smardz Frost both received Awards of Merit from Heritage Toronto.
