At both the urban and architectural scales, the suburban fabric of large cities like Toronto isolates people from one another and from the environment in which they live: social space is segregated by class, urban form is designed for the car and as a result actively discourages face to face interaction, while living spaces are cut off from the solar energy, air and living plants and animals that that surrounds them.

An examination of the chilling role architecture played in constructing Auschwitz.
