Toronto Star
Toronto's newest library, its 99th, is set to open in November. The Fort York Library, an unusual, modern building with what looks like a crazy tilted roof, offers a rare view of its namesake, Fort York.

Journal de Montréal
Les voitures filent rue Saint-Denis, laissant une traînée de lumière sur la pellicule photographique. Au moment de la photo, ce secteur vivote, regrettant ses meilleurs jours.

10 idées piquées dans une chambre du Fogo Island Inn
La Presse
Parmi les innombrables références à l'architecture résidentielle traditionnelle, il y a l'utilisation du lambris. Ainsi, dans les chambres de l'établissement, du lambris blanc habille le plafond. «C'était très prisé, car utile pour camoufler les imperfections, fait remarquer Kingman Brewster, architecte à la fondation Shorefast. L'ombre créée par les bords arrondis attire l'attention et donne une impression d'uniformité, malgré les irrégularités.»

Bold new suburbia: Meet the architects daring to better the 'burbs
Arch Daily
For much of its existence, American suburbia has been considered an architectural wasteland. From shopping malls to McMansions to residential developments, suburbs look eerily similar and share a similar pattern of quick, cheap construction that has left little if any room for thoughtful design. But with the recent foreclosure crisis and growing environmental concerns, new opportunities have emerged to re-imagine the suburbs into sustainable, architecturally innovative communities.

Blue Hills House / la SHED architecture
Arch Daily
Located on a large property in the forest, this house is implanted on the edge of a slope on this mountainous site. In order to create an inconspicuous house in the landscape, the house was conceived all on the same level. The exterior is completely covered with natural white cedar siding which will become grey over time so that the residence will be even more unnoticeable behind the bark of the surrounding trees.

How urban scars are being remade into vibrant, vital playgrounds
The Globe and Mail
If you want to see the future of Canadian cities, you need to visit a place that's not on the map. Head east from Toronto's downtown core and deke south under two overpasses of bellowing traffic. Pass the construction fences and you reach a lush, thriving marshland. Walk up the hill and look: From under a pavilion, you can see a dense neighbourhood taking shape. New buildings line the lawns on the edge of the park.
