Thomas Allen is an architectural journalist from Hamilton, Ontario. With a background in history from McMaster University and an advanced diploma in journalism from Mohawk College, Thomas has spent his last five years studying architecture and urban design.
Hamilton is full of architectural gems – some stand shine like a diamond, while others need more attention. As the city is going through a stage of renewal, Thomas thinks it’s important for us to be aware of our built environment.
This blog is more than just architecture, though. It’s about everything there is to love about the city and what we can do as a community to make Hamilton an even better place to live, work, and raise a family.
When he is not reading or writing, you can find Thomas wandering or bicycling around the city, frequenting his favourite shops, restaurants, and cafes.
