Toronto Form Condos | 50.59m | 14s | Tridel | a—A




Tridel and aA just don’t go well together. aA works best with builders who don’t value engineer the hellmout of the materials. For aA’s sake it may be best for them to reconsider working with Tridel.
This looks more silvery than typical Toronto gray to me. With the facade being so intricate, we have a lot more fenestration to go before we have a solid idea of the final effect. In any case, it's a busy facade, but we always knew they were trying something out-of-the-ordinary here, and with it being this different, I doubt we'll get unanimity on this one.

aA's work is arguably about simplicity and clarity of concept, and thus, it will always hinge on the cladding choice. Unfortunately, it seems like Tridel isn't willing to meet halfway on the higher-end cladding materials that an aA designs require/deserve.
I usually do not like buildings that bump out as they rise rather than bump in and get slimmer as they rise. However this is an exception. I really like the way it’s coming along.
