9780774829359: Planning Toronto: The Planners, The Plans, Their Legacies, 1940-80

Toronto is known for being the "city that works." In this lavishly illustrated, meticulously researched book, Richard White analyzes the city's planning and how it contributed to Toronto becoming a functional, world-class city. Focusing on the critical period from 1940 to 1980, he examines how planners sought to shape the city and the region amid obstacles and a maelstrom of local and international influences. Planning Toronto offers the first comprehensive explanation of how Toronto's postwar plans―city, metropolitan, and regional―came to be, who devised them, and what impact they had. As this definitive history reveals, planning matters―though not always as expected.
