toronto towers

Windless summer afternoon not always the best for architecture tours. Fortunately we picked Towers Tour so we walked in the shadows of the giants on Bay & Front. Having done both the modern skyscraper and the historic skyscraper tour in Chicago (wanna do IIT Campus Tour next time I visit), I wasn’t expecting much. But the integration of heritage buildings into modern skyscrapers is fascinating. I have always admired the one in BCE place (right photo yes I still refer to it as BCE place) but haven’t paid much attention to Bay Adelaide Centre (left photo) and toronto stock exchange. I used to think that there are not enough skyscrapers in Toronto to make a canyon. But maybe there are. If not in length then in depth.
