ENDANGERED SPECIES investigates the notion of modern architecture as an endangered genus. Is modernism bound for extinction?

The twenty-six buildings included in the book Endangered Species are threatened for demolition. The book aims to engage a debate about the survival of Canadian Modernism. The project initiated in 2005 in partnership between DOMINION MODERN and the SCHOOLOFDESIGN at George Brown College (Toronto), was intended to spur a dialogue among students and the wider community on the topic of modern architecture and its endangerment.

The book Includes the CATALOGUE OF DESTRUCTION and essays by Carole Pope, John Martins-Manteiga, Steve Russell, Gene Threndyle, José Castel-Branco, Luigi Ferrara, Peter Kuitenbrouwer and Adam Sobolak.
