    Toronto 839 Yonge | 160.2m | 49s | CT REIT | Adamson

    Fair. I think it's much more of a striking resemblance for me since I live in Vancouver and see BIG's building almost every day. Had Adamson not gone for the stepped setbacks, I'd have a different opinion. That being said, it is a sad state of affairs IMO that the design ethos of some local...

    They've basically plagiarized BIG's Vancouver House building in Vancouver by Westbank. Didn't even *try* to change the design details. Adamson Associates should be ashamed: source...

    Toronto Nobu Residences Toronto | 156.66m | 45s | Madison Group | Teeple Architects

    I moved to Vancouver about 10 yrs back and it pains me to see the drivel being put out by developers in Toronto. Quite a few of the projects seem to be lacking in quality & design. Do the developers putting out shoddy projects not take pride in the city?! There's extensive community...

    Something along the lines of KPF's Robinson Tower project in Singapore would've been great for this site: https://www.dezeen.com/2019/09/05/robinson-tower-skyscraper-kohn-pedersen-fox-kpf-garden-singapore/

    Hopefully this will lead to other developers raising their game.

    Good article about the construction of Absolute: Increasingly complex designs, tight deadlines and higher tolerances are pushing equipment suppliers to develop more sophisticated, and more user-friendly products for the concrete construction sector. Complex designs, be they for tower...

    Toronto Ryerson Student Learning Centre | 50.59m | 8s | Ryerson University | Zeidler

    Nicely done. There clearly is design inspiration from the concept rendering, although it appears the smooth and curvy facade was a casualty of Ryerson's cost-cutting.
