Architectural Postmodernism

IMG_2786Recently, I’ve been making a few trips to the Distillery District in downtown Toronto. I love the way the urban planners have used the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery to house an area for restaurants, breweries, bakeries and galleries (which in my opinion, are a little too commercial). My few trips have made me think about post-modernism quite a bit, and how we are picking and choosing the best bits of the past to create a surreal contemporary collage. The Distillery District is inspirational to me because it has made me wonder what other possibilities there are out there for a postmodernist approach to urban planning and life itself.
