PETER DICKINSON’S TOWER #2. Toronto’s modernist awarding winning Tower…..Demolished

Inspired by Ebenezer Howard’s Garden City movement, the plan  included open green spaces, waterscapes, playgrounds, streets that ended in cul-de-sacs designed to discourage traffic. These images, from the vantage point of the waterscape and Peace Garden, show the stages of demolition of 15 Belshaw Place.
