    FREE PUBLIC LECTURE: UNBUILT HAMILTON
    8:00 PM to 9:30 PM Presenting a Hamilton that might have been—the Ambitious City at its most ambitious. Exploring the origins and fates of unrealized building, planning and transportation proposals across two centuries, using archival illustrations and photographs, author and historian Mark Osbaldeston shows abandoned Hamilton projects such as a magnetically propelled, elevated transit system, and a North American version of the Champs-Élysées. Alternate designs for Jackson Square, Christ’s Church Cathedral, and the High Level Bridge cast new light on familiar landmarks and earlier decision-making. “You can tell a lot about a place by what its people build. But what they fail to build is often just as telling.” (James Osbaldeston, Unbuild Toronto 2.) Mark Osbaldeston has written and spoken extensively on Toronto's architectural and planning history. His first book, Unbuilt Toronto: A History of the City That Might Have Been, was the subject of an exhibition at the Royal Ontario Museum, a finalist for the Toronto Book Awards, and received a Heritage Toronto Award of Merit.
