Architecture in Toronto

BY SHAWN MICALLEF
@ VOL 11 ON NOV 03, 2011

He makes the argument that, while traditionally beautiful cities like Paris or Prague may retain a romanticized image, Toronto's lack of boundaries when it comes to maintaining a determined style allows it to experiment and create much livelier streets and sprawls.
