    ^Laughter is better than apathy, which is how I've been feeling the past few months. Trying to get back into my creative outlet--if I'm not creating I'm not a happy nimby.

    1)Utterly bored by the glass window wall/balcony tower aesthetic
    [​IMG]

    2)Simple facade idea I started several months ago--who knows if I'll finish it

    3)Staring at a stack of coins gave me a boring balcony tower massing idea

    I'm utterly bored by this decade old aesthetic:

    I need to get out of this window and bash my head against the wall.

    Yikes I've just spent 4 months in prison unable to think/design/create due to lack of energy/time/passion. Utter hell.

    Anyway, I recently opened SketchUp for the first time in months--kinda missed ya.

    Not really inspired yet though

    But, I'm happy to see certain BIGshot architects inspired to create even better-looking spires than I envisioned for Yonge & College 4 years ago....:)

    Sorry for screwing with my condo investors fixed on the "artist's impression" rendering, but I've just made a material change--thankfully my real estate lawyer is my 3rd cousin 12x removed--to my 88.88% sold out "8000 square feet floorplate" condos

    I drive a matte black McLaren P1 so shouldn't my condo match my style?
    [​IMG]
    I also ride a matte black Moto Guzzi to client meetings in Caledon so shouldn't the blinds be matte black as well?

    Yes please perfect design for the area... stands out and has some great demensions, shape, colours, style, and street presence. And a bonus saved building facade.

    Not sure if this is the right thread for average poster's fantasy renderings, or if it's solely about buildings. Anyway, with Finch West's unveiling in the news yesterday, and comments from the public about the conventional and somewhat timid single colour throughout the station, I wanted to see something a little different. I used a .skp file of Rosedale station created by artist Wyliepoon but made modifications as if it were a deep-level 'open concept' station.

    Couldn't figure out how to bring light into the model or make the light fixtures glow, so it looks more drab than I was anticipating. Structure is supposed to look similar to Montreal or Washington DC stations (but a bit more Victorian industrial), wall tiles are a vague attempt at something European/De Stijl, and the orange floor is a copy of Montreal. For fun:

    Hello here's what I've been sketching the past 6 week's or so:
    1) Somewhere on Bay Street inspired by the 1960's Concrete Toronto facades
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    2) Checkerboard facade inspired by Carl Dair's Design With type - insert somewhere in the Condo District
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    3) Lake Ontario-inspired wave motif for the South Etobicoke skyline
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    4) ppl on twitter wonder what to nickname M City tower 1. My suggestion: the skirt or the blouse, inspired by Marilyn Monroe's famous photo. Especially apparent in the worm's eye viewpoint rendering.

    [​IMG]

    9) the stripes is me wondering what Peter and Richmond would really look like if aA & Carlyle ever build it
    [​IMG]

    10) Could Robarts Library inspire an architect? No but maybe a nimbytect ... stay tuned :)

    Bay Dundas Centre is my vision for the Toronto Coach Terminal lands. Tower 1 window dressing is a simple precast and glass grid 8000 sq ft floorplate tower 50 storeys high ... balconies on the way.

    Its podium is the restored historic main building with the tower occupying the bus bays.

    Tower 4 is very tall--Canada's tallest proposed skyscraper
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Bay Dundas Centre is another nimbytect neighbourhood
    [​IMG]
    tower 5 is next

    nimbytect is willing to sell the Ontario Gov't 4 balcony towers for the price of 1 affordable 1 bedroom apartment unit on the 4th floor at 26 Grenville
    [​IMG]

    What happens when 215 Lake Shore Blvd East gets a super-dense four tower proposal inspired by Lake Ontario?
    [​IMG]

    What happens when I realize the Waterfront Innovation Centre is conveniently across the street from 215 Lake Shore East? And deserves more than just another glass box? Hmm ....

    I dunno about you but the first thing that pops into my mind when I think Toronto Waterfront Innovation Centre is
    [​IMG]
    Yes, shipping containers!
    [​IMG]
    Let's stack 'em high, punch some windows and doors into them, have some cool indie cafes etc at grade level and bring some colour to Toronto's waterfront!
