Fifty 50 is an exploration of modernist church architecture in Toronto, Ontario.
From the late 1940s to the 1980s, Toronto experienced a high rate of growth and development, resulting in a wealth of modernist-style buildings. Due to an increasing population, parishes were also outgrowing their spaces and found themselves in need of new facilities. Consequently, there are many fine modernist churches in the city. This series is an ode to these buildings, albeit a half-century or so after their construction.
