One of my highlights at this years Doors Open was a visit to Zeidler Partnership Architects headquarters located at 315 Queen West. Zeidler is known for many projects including Ontario Place, The Eaton Centre and the new Trump Tower Toronto.

While I've passed the location literally thousands of times over the years I had no clue what was going on behind the scenes. All I knew was I that liked the model of Ontario Place (now gone for some reason) that was found at this unassuming entrance way.

Stairs up to the second floor.

And all of a sudden a major atrium. Sure looks a lot like a famous mall they designed down the road doesn't it?

The retail is so well done you wouldn't actually know that they occupy the entire building. I certainly didn't.
