Paving Back Campus

The smell of asphalt displaced the usual scents of spring and new growth today.

I've been photographing the University of Toronto's Back Campus Fields Project for over a year. Today it turned from being paved over metaphorically to literally. If it were a parking lot it would comfortably fit over 400 cars; if it was a building covering the same area it would need to have a substantial green roof to offset the loss of green space.

Instead it will be carpeted.

More photos from today can be found on my Back Campus Camera project blog.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
