Curious Minds // Toronto Views: An Architectural History of Our Changing City

If every picture tells a story, so does every building. Intentional or not, everything we construct says something about who we are and the world we hope to create. In this series of six illustrated lectures, veteran Toronto Star architecture critic Christopher Hume explores post-war Toronto architecture decade by decade to see what it reveals about this city—and the people who inhabit it. Starting with the good intentions of the 1950s and the exuberance of the ‘60s, we end with the 21st century, when the city we know took shape. Relive the stories behind our city’s skyline and encounter hidden gems that cry out for discovery. See the streets and buildings of Toronto as you’ve never experienced them before.

Led by Christopher Hume, who was the architecture critic and urban issues columnist for the Toronto Star from the early 1980s until his retirement in 2016. He is the recipient of many of Canada’s country’s top awards in the field, including the National Newspaper Award and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada President’s Award. He remains a freelance columnist for The Star.
