My pick would be the Globe and Mail Centre.
Not really the thread for this but what does everyone like so much about the GMC?
The glass, the projecting volumes, the reflections in the SW corner…
That is absolutely stunning!!! So beautiful, I love so much about this project. Awesome photos @skycandy
I took a close-up of the mosaic yesterday as well, but forgot to post. Here's a nice rainbow to brighten an otherwise grey day...
I am astounded(!) That is so(oooo) beautiful! Thank you skycandy! I hope to be able to squeeze in a visit when next I'm in town. Post more pictures, please(!)
Getting torn down: best thing that ever happened to the Concourse Building?
No. Getting restored would have been. This was the next best option.
With inaccessible washrooms for the disabled, low height ceilings, lack of natural light and insufficient elevator space? Sometimes buildings are just old and need to be replaced.
In that era a lot of buildings were built with washrooms built 1/2 floor above/below the office. So guys would walk 1/2 flight up and women a 1/2 a flight down (or vice versa) to get to the washroom. 50% fewer washrooms. And 100% fewer disabled people needing access. Not acceptable now.
Filling out part of the skyline quite nicely indeed.
