Concrete Toronto wins Heritage Toronto Award!
Coach House Books is pleased to announce that Concrete Toronto: A Guidebook to Concrete Architecture from the Fifties to the Seventies received the Award of Excellence in the Book Category at the 2008 Heritage Toronto Awards ceremony, held last night at the historic Carlu.
'The Heritage Toronto Awards jury felt that this book encapsulates the architecture that many of us grew up with,' reads the jury's citation. 'In the 1960s and 1970s, these concrete buildings were the essence of Toronto. Many of these concrete structures will now need our protection to survive, and the book clearly advocates for their importance and preservation. Concrete Toronto is well designed and rich in detail, with many contributions from the heritage community.'
Congratulations to editors Michael McClelland and Graeme Stewart!
