Lecture: Unbuilt Architectural Visions by Mark Osbaldeston

7:45 pm

Drawing on dozens of archival images, Mark Osbaldeston explores never-realized planning, transit, and architectural proposals for Toronto’s downtown core. Why is there a Queen Street ghost station? What was the Mystery Block? What happened to Federal Avenue? Discover the answer to these and other questions in this informative and entertaining talk.
Mark Osbaldeston spoke to the William Morris Society in 2020 on unrealized plans for Queen’s Park and the University of Toronto. He is the author of three books, Unbuilt Toronto, Unbuilt Toronto 2 and Unbuilt Hamilton. He has curated exhibitions based on his research at the Royal Ontario Museum, the Toronto Archives and the Art Gallery of Hamilton.

Reception to follow.
