Michael McClelland and Graeme Stewart asked architects, historians, engineers, journalists and architecture students to submit short essays and images on the topic of Toronto's concrete buildings from around the 1960s period. The result is an eclectic series of essays from a variety of perspectives on projects spanning the '50s through the '70s.

Appropriately, a number of the responses discuss new City Hall, including a good article by Marsha Kelmans on its specially designed concrete furniture (the mayor's desk, now gone, weighed 350 kilograms).
