A couple weeks ago I spent a few hours around the newly completed Globe and Mail Centre in Toronto. This is the new home of Canada’s national newspaper and was designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects. The building looks like it’s comprised of stacked boxes and has this really great, highly reflective surface. I shot early in the morning but preferred the shots I got in the midday sun, loved the hue of the blue sky reflecting in its glass.
My previous post, with new additions to my Cloudscapers series, were all from this building as well. I also photographed this building a few months ago when I was in Toronto for a workshop I led with Michael Muraz . The weather conditions were a bit different which resulted in a different feel to the images than this trip, if you want to see shots from both trips you can head over here.
Once again, I preferred this building in color…hard to resist that blue 😉
You know what, I actually worked at the Globe and Mail in 2008 and then the recession hit and because I was on contract and there was a union, last in is first out, I was forced to leave. But the old building , stuck in the sixties, didn't look anything like this!
Sorry to hear that, David. Yeah, this new building is pretty nice.
