I would argue that the Borden buildings are also interesting, if not architecturally then definitely historically.Aside from the older homes in the northwest segment of the ring(which are charming and hopefully will never be lost), the only disappointment is the utter mediocrity of the buildings around the circle. It's a shame that they were constructed at a time when little consideration or sympathy was given for the curves of the circle. Hopefully as downtown expands ever westward, someday we'll see new complimentary architecture that follows the contours of the circle and only enhances this "new" public realm!
Rear landscaping is coming together quite nicely and should be a great space in the summer.
I'd be hard-pressed to find a sorrier example of whining in my life. Unbelievable. As someone said, you're architects fix it yourself?The building is gorgeous, but obviously that is not enough. I don't mean this to sound trite; there's no school in all of the U of T which is better suited to tapping its own faculty and students to fix the issues here. No doubt it's going to take more than just better use of existing space, so I am curious about what physical changes will be made in upcoming months and years to tackle the problems. @modernizt, hopefully you'll be able to let us know about any solutions that improve the situation.
