To The New World: Estonian Architects In Toronto
Toronto has been called the Estonian capital abroad, because it is where the largest and most active community of Estonian immigrants was located. Revolutionary in its architecture and social aims, modernism’s post-war emergence was at odds with the cautious, evolutionary nature of Canadian culture. But in the context of growing internationalism, a large number of Estonians began to find success in private practice, influencing Toronto’s cultural landscape and new ideas in architectural discourse. The largely untold story of their remarkable impact on the city and their contribution to an emerging Canadian identity has driven the research presented in this volume.
