BUILT Books on Architecture

From the long weekend trip Look Past the CN Tower in Toronto

While independent bookstores are being shuttered elsewhere, this savvy architecture bookshop opened in spring 2009 in a converted century-old tin factory. The discerning collection includes local gems like Do Good Design by David Berman, ethics chair of the Graphic Designers of Canada, and TSA Guide Map: Toronto Architecture 1953-2003, by the Toronto Society of Architects. The same team also run Swipe, a fab graphic-design and advertising bookstore in the same building.
