I will be exhibiting three photos of high-rises along side other talented photographers at the opening gala for the Toronto Urban Photography Festival at Gallery 918 (918 Bathurst) this Friday June 27th from 6-11pm. Come by if you can! Check out www.tupf.ca for workshops, photo walks and phototalks from June 27 – July 12.
If all of Peter Dickinson’s high-rises (foreground) are demolished, a memory of them will exist in 90 Sumach (background).
Note the similar forms and details: colour of brick, shape of each patch of brick, the window style and the way each building features vertical lines of windows.
This impressive International-style facade will be lost to yet another glass envelope. You can see the new diesign at http://www.urbantoronto.ca/database/projects/480-university-icon.
