“we need houses as we need clothes, architecture stimulates fashion. it’s like hunger and thirst — you need them both.” // k. lagerfeld
toronto is not known for its architecture, as of late the city has become infamous for far more humiliating topics.* ignoring that, (if only we could), there are some charming spots in and around the city where the buildings do hold a certain quirky appeal.
the old victorians in the west-end, the low-rise apartments in the middle of the city that bring to mind a city coming of age in the 50s. and in having to live amongst these bricks, to stare at them day in and day out, brings to mind that in staring at your wardrobe, day in and day out, you better find some charm in there too, or you’ll be finding somewhere else to live, right quick.
