The ATLANTROPA Project And Steve Zissou

The project was re-born at the Lake Simcoe Conference of 1968. The attendees were all followers of the German architect Herman Sörgel, who had died in 1952. The scale was diminished from the project envisaged by Sörgel down to a smaller scale version on Lake Simcoe to provide Hydro-electricity to Toronto.
