The skycourt and skygarden : greening the urban habitat [e-book]

Thursday, 24 July, 2014

@TitleThis book considers skycourts and skygardens as ‘alternative social spaces’ that form part of a broader multi-level urban infrastructure – seeking to make good the loss of open space within the built environment. Jason Pomeroy begins the discussion with the decline of the public realm, and how the semi-public realm has been incorporated into a spatial hierarchy that supports the primary figurative spaces on the ground or, in their absence, creates them in the sky. He then considers skycourts and skygardens in terms of the social, cultural, economic, environmental, technological and spatial benefits that they provide to the urban habitat. Pomeroy concludes by advocating a new hybrid that can harness the social characteristics of the public domain, but be placed within buildings as an alternative communal space for the 21st century.

The 100 best Canadian songs ever

Thursday, July 24, 2014

We thought narrowing down last July's list of the 100 greatest Canadian albums was difficult, but just try deciding on the best Canadian songs with a staff of music lovers of all ages sprawled coast to coast. Apparently we love a challenge (and a great fight), but the dust has settled and we're pleased to present CBC Music's 100 best Canadian songs ever.
