Summary/Review: "This book examines the history, impact, and influence of Toronto's 1958 City Hall and Square competition, which resulted in the building designed by Viljo Revell. The book discusses the impact of this competition on the design of public institutions and urban public spaces in Canada, and reflects on the value of architectural competitions as Modern architecture developed in the mid-20th century. While not a catalogue, the book is published to coincide with the exhibition Shaping Canadian Modernity: Toronto's 1958 New City Hall and Square Competition and its Legacy, curated by architect and Ryerson University associate professor George Thomas Kapelos and historian Christopher Armstrong, mounted at the Paul H. Cocker Gallery, Ryerson University from September 1 to October 9, 2015."--
