Nature Grows in the Cracks of the Cement

Evergreen Brick Works — a premier eco-urban destination in Toronto — stakes out a place for nature in the city.

After years of neglect, there was literally a forest growing in the cracks of the Brick Works as it crumbled and decayed. Rather than remove all the native vegetation, the architects chose to preserve bits and pieces of it throughout the site when it was re-developed.
