The West end reveals about eight different architectural stages, from fine wooden mansions to functional wooden walk-ups, not to mention more highrise towers than any other neighbourhood in Canada. But how did it all come about—and why Gordon will explain some of the planning theory and trends that shaped the West End—and some of the lessons to be learned.

Time: 10am to 12pm
