    here at al&d MArch2's are begining Studio 3: Culture and the Metropolis, a studio that begins with an investigation of the urban fabric of Toronto. i spent the day getting photos of my site, but along my way also did a little investigating of our site here for the al&d blog. here's what unfolded and with it a bit of the al&d psycho-geographic map

    since al&d is located downtown at the intersection of College and Spadina, right in the thick of the city, there's a lot going on in the area, like this scene of friendly local breakers who we happened to run into at the corner of Queen and Spadina

    jazzyjester informed us that we witnessing a rare event, these breakers are hardcore enough to be busting it out on “c-ment”
