We have updated our dataBase to reflect that "Stevens Group Architects / IBI Group Architects" has been folded into IBI Group. Though this project was originally partially credited to the old long form version of their name, the dataBase file now simply shows IBI Group as per their request.

Here are a whole bunch of panels waiting to be installed.

When you look closely at them, you can see that they're actually perforated. Which I didn't know until now.

When did the look of rusted metal become popular? I can understand it being used a little bit but I rely think that this is an over use of it. It just looks bad like someone didn't take care of it properly.
 
The roof of Old City Hall is "rusted" (tarnished) copper. When the copper was put on new, it would be copper coloured (brownish yellow), but turns green as it oxidizes (oxygen atoms join with the copper atoms).

yes but that is a much smaller amount it's not like all of the building is covered in it.
 
I like it. While the use of the material is controversial it is unique and makes this station stand out for its architecture. In a sea of blandness in Vaughan, this station will stand out and add some colour. I'd much rather have this than more beige/grey concrete.
