Marshall McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology
When the University of Toronto and St.Michael's College administrations created the Marshall McLuhan Centre for Culture and Technology in 1963 as part of their successful effort to prevent their new super-star academic from leaving Toronto there were plans to erect a suitable building to house it. Oddly, these plans were never realized and the Centre ended up in a forlorn carriage house at the back of a parking lot to the rear of 39 Queen's Park Crescent. Although work at the Centre carried on after McLuhan's death in 1980 it failed to achieve any marked success and was subsequently absorbed into what is now the Faculty of Information.
