The theme of Spacing #4 is The History Of Our Future – our writers contemplate the city Toronto could've been and the place it could become. Articles focus on such topics as: the highways planned throughout the downtown and midtown parts of Toronto; hooking up a sound system to the CN Tower; turning the SkyDome into a sustainable housing community; the other proposals submitted in the 1950s for New City Hall; a city-wide network of enclosed and elevated bike paths; and waterfront urbanism at work in the Port Lands, 2043. This issue will also see the release of a report conducted with the Toronto Public Space Committee on how the city is being over-run by outdoor advertisers.

In May 2006, this issue of Spacing won Gold at the National Magazine Awards in the Best Editorial Package category. We were lucky enough to beat out Report on Business, Canadian Geographic, Azure, and Saturday Night.

Our contributors include Jim Munroe, Darren O'Donnell, Toronto's poet laureate Pier Giorgio DiCicco, Ed Keenan, Sam Javanrouh, Rannie Turingan, Gayla Trail, Davin Risk, Matt O'Sullivan, Nathalie Atkinson, Marc Ngui, Michelle Kasprzak, Julia Breckenreid, Adam Krawesky, and a plethora of amazing images culled from the Toronto Archives.
