Toronto has a good amount of Brutalist Architecture, most predominantly its City Hall. Full of curves from a sculptural area in the plaza to the actual highrise buildings in the background. Here you see some details from a distance.
I often think brutalist architecture looks good in black and white given its coldness from all the concrete. However, something about the curves in this space makes it a bit more inviting even in black and white. Including some full trees doesn’t hurt either.
Moving closer to the highrises and looking up, the bright blue skies of the afternoon plus the warmth of the sun on the concrete make for some pretty good color versions of this space.
All those curves, reflections, warm light and vibrant blue skies soften up these buildings making them almost inviting.
