The Park Around the Tower: A Look at the Landscape Experiences Around Toronto's Post-War Highrises

This presentation dealt with the landscapes around the Toronto's postwar towers. It focused on the inner suburbs, discussing how residents of these towers experience their surrounding open spaces.
In order to contextualize this within a larger planning context, an introduction to the historical development of these landscapes was provided. This was followed by an analysis of the current situation of these open spaces, as they face revitalization.
