The brief coexistence of two structures that are incapable of sharing the same space. This evening shot provided by Forum member yonderbean shows Diamond + Schmitt's Bridgepoint Health Centre standing opposite its predecessor, Chapman & Hurst's exuberant mid-century Riverdale Hospital. Reminiscent of other doomed pairings in the city such as the Registry Building & New City Hall and First Canadian Place & the former headquarters of the Bank of Montreal, there exists a small window in which the contemporary building and its ill-fated partner stand together. Either unwanted or incapable of being reused, this architectural succession is a reminder that little of our built form is permanent.
