PROUST QUESTIONNAIRE No. 6
image What is your favorite new building?
Charles Pachter’s house / studio on Grange Street – designed by Teeple Architects and the house by Garth Norbraten on Hastings.
What is your favorite old building?
I’m too conflicted to pick a heritage building, but a not new building would be the ‘cork’ house near Christie Pits.
What is your favorite street name/ intersection?
Federal Avenue, the street that never was.
Where is the heart of the city?
City Hall.
If there was one Toronto place that no longer remains that you could visit for an afternoon what would it be?
I’d like to go see a matinee in the Mies van de Rohe designed cinema formerly located in the basement of the TD Centre.
What is your most memorable event in Toronto?
Getting engaged on the TTC.
What is your favorite urban walk?
My weekly dash from 10 St. Mary to the ROM through Victoria College.
If you could change one thing about the City what would it be?
I’d like to see Torontonians treat their local park like it was their own front yard.
What’s your most treasured place in the City?
I collect atriums. My favorites are Osgoode Hall, BCE, and the Rotunda at the ROM.
Where would you most want to live, if not Toronto?
Sweden – mostly for their new environmental policy to be oil-free by 2020.
Where would you most want to live in Toronto?
I’m in Leslieville and loving it! Since its not yet labeled it feels authentic and its close to great bike trails.
