The photographs in this series document the demolition of three large apartment buildings designed by architect Peter Dickinson in the late 1950s for the public housing development in downtown Toronto’s Regent Park. The neighbourhood is currently undergoing a major and positive revitalization as the old buildings are demolished and new ones are built. As the demolition work has progressed and the exterior walls of the buildings were removed, I witnessed a colourful mosaic of the exposed interiors and realized that behind the drab and anonymous façades were rooms that used to belong to individual people with their own unique and diverse lives.
