Civic Symbol

Creating Toronto's New City Hall, 1952-1966

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Christopher Armstrong, with a foreword by John Sewell

“Filled with fascinating stories and photographs, and based on exhaustive research, Civic Symbol is an important book about an important building.” –Mark Osbaldeston, author of Unbuilt Toronto

The story of Toronto’s New City Hall is one of a large urban centre in transition, torn between a parochial past and a multicultural future. Christopher Armstrong chronicles the winding path that took architect Viljo Revell’s extraordinary design from concept to reality. Lavishly illustrated with contemporary photographs, plans, and drawings, Civic Symbol is the essential history of this iconic Canadian building.
