Hey everyone,

My name is Tom. I guess I've been lurking around various modern architecture/design hubs (Fabprefab, Dwell, LM, etc..) for some time now but rarely chime up. I think it'll be neat to get a dialog going with a local perspective.

Thanks Sim, for the initiative and setting up this forum (love to hear some more about your new home, who is your architect?)

My name is also Tom, and like TK, am interested in learning more about modern in Southern Ontario. I'm not ready to build a home just yet, but would like to know what community, if any, exists in the area!

Hey Guys,

It's great to see that we are not alone!

At this stage, we don't have an architect - we're still in preplanning. I anticipate that we will have another 1 to 5 years before we'll be ready to start the actual planning - in the meantime, I am trying to get a couple of architects interested in joining this forum and perhaps engaging them.

Sim has asked me to join this and I am honoured to do so. I have staked my career on the success of modernist prefab so I will of course be happy to contribute and hope that I do not come off as a corporate shill, because I am not. I do this because I love design and I love the idea of prefab, after a career of building conventionally. Most of the time, I sell prefabs and run a blog on modernist prefab.[url href=][/url] I hope I can add something here.

regards, Lloyd Alter

Hi guys,


Glad to be part of the club. Hi Sim, you may know me from the past. If it is you, I was suprised to see you on the forum. I just joined and excited to see a group interested in the same stuff as myself. Bought a Dwell off the stands about 2 years ago and been hooked ever since. Like many, looking to build something at sometime in the future but looking to see what is around. Since modern construction is almost non-exsistant on MLS in GTA, I guess we'll all need to start from scratch and hopefully start a trend. Hopefully, it will catch on.


Cheers, Rob

Hey "modern club" can I join? can I join?


My name is Andrew.  Local Architect (LineBox studio inc.) that has a strong passion and interest in everything "modern".  This is a great site and its great to see local interest.  It’s great to have a blog that people can share ideas, experiences and most importantly share resources / knowledge of local content.  We also have a little blog on our site that we are using to posts Ontario bases suppliers, materials, topics and local modern elements.  We have found that there is a very strong trend leaning towards a more clean, distilled, smaller, green and design conscience built environment.  We are also noticing the need for more designers/builders/firms that can provide strong design services without the arrogance that is sometimes connected to “design”. 


Anyhow, just wanted to check in and introduce myself.  If anyone has questions about building a new home in the GTA just ask.
