Construction sites re-visualised. Urbanization and suburban development in the 905 area code north of Toronto.
The land north, east, and west of Toronto had been occupied by the Anishinabek, the Haudenosaunee, and the Huron-Wendat, for some 12 to 15,000 years. It was purchased by treaty 13 in 1805. The woods were cleared by the settlers for farming. As the city grew, the farms made way for housing tracts.
This continues at an unprecedented pace and all that remains are small outcrops of what once was. Open lands are devoured and developed into what seems like an infinite number of houses, malls, and plazas creating the local vernacular.
