Third in ongoing series of authoritative online guides to urban landscapes in North America

Washington, D.C. (May 21, 2015) – The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) today announced that Toronto, Canada is the subject of a new profusely illustrated online city guide. This is the third in an ongoing series and the first in Canada.  More than 80 sites and 25 designer profiles are featured in the What's Out There Toronto Guide, an online resource with contemporary and historic images, and succinct narratives searchable by landscapes types and styles, and designers. The guide is derived from TCLF’s free, searchable What's Out There database, the most comprehensive database of North America’s designed landscape legacy, which currently has more than 1,800 entries, 900 designer profiles and 10,000 images.  What’s Out There is optimized for iPhones and similar devices and includes What's Nearby, a GPS-enabled function that locates all sites in the database within a 25-mile radius of any given location.

The What's Out There Toronto Guide, designed by Oviatt Media, is the third in TCLF’s new series of online guides to urban destinations and follows the critically praised inaugural guide – for Denver – launched in November 2014, and the follow-up for Washington, DC, launched in April 2015.  The Toronto Guide covers the designed landscape legacy of the city from its late eighteenth century origins through to the twenty-first century development on the waterfront.
