A Modernist Paradise....
St James Town in Toronto was developed in the 1960's following the ideas of Le Corbusier's Towers in the Park city of the future. Modernism taken to an extreme. The buildings were machines for living - with open shared areas between.
Originally targeted at the young aspiring office worker class in Toronto's new urban centre no one with any money wanted to live there. They soon become the almost exclusive preserve of Low Income New Canadians - and such they have remained to this day.
I hate Modernism, I hate everything it stands for and what it does to people.
Officially 17,000 people live here in 19 buildings, in reality multiple occupancy pushes the total to around 25,000. It's recognised as one of Canada's most deprived areas as well as one of it's most densely populated.
