^^^ That's not "towers-connected-with-sky-bridge" and you know it. You're just being pissy. Those aren't towers and those aren't sky-bridges. It's a different form, a stacked-building form. I was referring specifically to tall towers connected with sky-bridges, which is a typology I don't like. I'm entitled to my opinion.

My first impression was the same as Condovo. I’m not fond of the bridge either. However I could be convinced with more details. Aside from that this proposal is very very exiting. It’s wonderful that the city is spreading east into an otherwise undeveloped area.

"London-based Foster + Partners is a kind of Georges Braque or Giorgio de Chirico of the design world, whose cubist-influenced designs include the Kuwait International Airport and The One skyscraper at Yonge and Bloor – Canada’s tallest building at 85-storeys. In total, six leading architectural firms collaborated on 3C, including Toronto’s KPMB Architects, Montreal’s Claude Cormier + Associates and New York’s SHoP Architects. "

Huh? Nevermind that F+P isn't Cubist - just what is Cubist about the Kuwaiti terminal, for one?


Seriously.

I got the impression that whoever wrote that F+P piece simply doesn't know what cubist means.

Wow yup they got that wrong. Far from cubist.

I’m all for a Parade 2.0 kinda tower maybe with all round pieces. Round towers with a round bridge?

Current model is just... meh.

will this project interfere with the don lands redevelopment or is it going to be incorporated into it?
