Organized as a series of walks through the distinctive precincts of the University of Toronto's three campuses, this architectural guide offers an intimate view of Canada's largest university. Upper Canada's first institute of higher education was originally built in the nineteenth century in a pastoral setting outside the city limits. The downtown St.George campusdeeply embedded in Toronto's dense urban coreserves a community of 70,000 students. One of the highest-ranked universities in the world, it contains some of the finest architecture in Canada, starting with Frederic Cumberland's masterpiece, the Norman Romanesque-style University College, (1859). Otherbuildings of note include W. G. Storm's impressive Romanesque-revival Victoria College building (1892), Darling and Pearson's Gothic-style Trinity College Building (1925), and Hart House, designed by architects Sproatt and Rolph (1919). In recent years, the university has continued to expand with buildings designed by Sir Norman Foster, Behnisch Architects, KPMB Architects, Diamond and Schmitt, and Pritzker prize-winner Morphosis, among many others.

Review:

"Anyone who has attended the University of Toronto will be interested in Larry Wayne Richard's University of Toronto: An Architectural Tour. Established in the nineteenth century, the University of Toronto is 'Canada's largest institution of higher education, with three campuses in and around Toronto.' Jam packed with beautiful photos,interesting text and detailed maps, University of Toronto: An Architectural Tour is a good book for current students of U of T as well as the university's alumni and those interested in architecture or Toronto's history. the book is a guide for visitors, alumni and students of the universities' various campuses including such places as the 1859 University College to the Scarborough College of 1966." -- Metroland North

"Professor Larry Wayne Richards authors comprehensive guide to U of T's architecture and the institution's origins in the 19th century." --The Natchitoches Times

"The guide is illustrated with Tom Arbans handsome photographs, capturing details and overviews in summer and winter, peopled and deserted, of the Universitys campus and buildings. The consistency of Arbans image-making reinforces Ricards astute and studied observations, underscoring the value of capturing a place through one photographers studied eye." --Canadian Architect
