Join us in the Urbanspace Gallery for the launch of Exploring Toronto by Ken and Eti Greenberg.
Toronto is rich in public spaces — deeply incised ravines, lively neighbourhoods, lush gardens and parks, iconic bridges, even repurposed industrial silos and undercrofts of elevated highways. Urban designer Ken Greenberg and Toronto aficionado Eti Greenberg have combed the city on foot and by tandem bike, discovering some of Toronto’s best outdoor public spaces.
In Exploring Toronto, they have gathered twenty-eight of their favourite spots, each offering something unique — a flash of ingenious design, a surprise vantage point, or simply relief from the hum of traffic. Ken and Eti bring their distinctive perspective, informed by years of work in urban design, to each of their choices, providing readers (and explorers) with the full story of the history, design, and appeal of each one-of-a-kind place.
“Exploring Toronto is a beautiful tribute to the people and places that have shaped the city’s public landscape. Ken and Eti have made a meaningful and lasting contribution to the places they feature, and with this book they invite readers to walk alongside them as they discover, rediscover and celebrate the city they have helped to build and that they dearly love.” — David Carey & Ilana Altman, Co-Executive Directors of The Bentway.
Exploring Toronto includes a foreward by 8 80 Cities Executive Director Amanda O’Rourke.
