“The stones were dancing now. O yes, they were dancing. But it was not hopping and skipping like jigs or reels, nor was it the dismal revolving of a ballroom. Not a stone moved from its place, but they rocked and turned slowly and with the greatest of dignity, as if to say, ‘We are the lords of the earth and of the water. We shall stand when all has gone. We shall endure until better things come. But what can be better than we? So we shall endure forever.'”
– Robertson Davies, Harper of the Stones (1986)
The Evergreen Brickworks is a national charity and a top 10 geotourism destination (according to National Geographic) located outside of Toronto. This former brickworks factory has become a symbol of successful re-purposing, of integrating ecology, design, technology, and the arts. Phew that was a mouthful – just think about it. But the spaces – mamma mia! Everything was photogenic here from the graffiti to the lake to the artisan studios. Here is sample of photographs I took with my new Nikon.
