Walter H. Kehm publishes new book "Accidental Wilderness: The Origins and Ecology of Toronto's Tommy Thompson Park"
Once referred to as Toronto’s "accidental wilderness,” Tommy Thompson Park is now recognized as an urban miracle. Initially created as a landfill site, the park has grown dramatically. Forests, grasslands, and wildlife now thrive – all steps from the most densely populated areas of North America’s fourth-largest city.
Accidental Wilderness is a rich collection of essays curated by internationally recognized landscape architect and original designer of Tommy Thompson Park, Walter H. Kehm, complemented by stunning photographs by renowned landscape photographer Robert Burley.
As a past professor of landscape architecture at the University of Guelph, including a term as Director of the School of Landscape Architecture, Walter has had a profound impact on the education of countless landscape architects in Canada and abroad.
