A few small things in today’s National Post: I check out the new green roof at the Royal Ontario Museum; revisit the behind the scenes shenanigans at last weekend’s MuchMusic Video Awards; and talk to author and photographer Jeff Fuchs about living in Shangri-la. For the full Q & A with Jeff, check out The Ampersand.
In today’s National Post: I take a look at the relationship between Gossip Girl and the web, and also preview Some Ideas on Living in London and Tokyo by Stephen Taylor and Ryue Nishizawa, a new exhibition at the Canadian Centre for Architecture that opens today.
Also: I check out the dismantling of Toronto’s historic Bishop’s Block.
In today’s National Post, I take a look at how the opening of the Michael Lee-Chin crystal will affect the image of Toronto. It has been architecture week for me at the Post: in Thursday’s paper I covered the Pug Awards, which honour the best and worst in Toronto design; and on Friday I explored HtO, Toronto’s new “urban beach.”
