    Old Backlit Subway Map @ York Mills Station

    I haven't noticed this until last week, but the old YUS subway route maps at both ends of the platform at York Mills station were lit up. Certainly brings back some nostalgia from a time when the Spadina subway went only as far as Wilson and the Sheppard Subway only existed on paper.

    Toronto Toronto | CN Tower: Entry Pavilion, Plaza, Renos | ?m | ?s | CLC | Arcadis

    The two towers that currently feature this walk (Auckland's Sky Tower and the Macau Tower) were designed fro the start to have this walk. The walkway is very nicely incorporated into their designs as a ring around the observation deck. No unsightly supports needed.

    Globe: Toronto's history stashed in a closet

    I'm divided between whether it's better to put the museum on OCH or a new building. The merit of OCH is that it is historically significant, is centrally located, and is built for public use. The downside is that heritage preservationists would be up in arms about any changes to the building...

    DRL Station Design

    One screen will tell the train arrival time in one direction, and the other screen tells the arrival time in the opposite direction. (Yes, I know that at Lawrence West station they use one screen for both directions, but that didn't pop into my head during the design process.)

    DRL Station Design

    Science Centre (Eglinton Avenue) Station (Don Mills Road/Eglinton Avenue East) (I spent 3.5 months working on this station design, after a forumer asked me to design some more stations around Christmas. In the aftermath of my April Fools disaster, I felt that this might be something that could...

    How Skyscrapers Can Save the City

    Just because I cited his stuff doesn't mean that I believe in him... and I don't. I cited the report to show that skyscrapers don't necessarily make cities more affordable, not because Cox said it, but it's been demonstrated in cities like HK.

    BFdesign Blog's TTC Brand Concept

    I don't think the biggest problem with TTC's corporate branding is not that it's not unique. I think the biggest problem is that it's inconsistent. Just like with every new thing that the TTC has implemented (the OneStop signs, streetcar arrival time displays, Presto, etc.) things are never...

    Nothing as dramatic as Pruitt-Igoe, but I think anytime a public housing "project" comes down is a historical moment. I've got to go there and check it out myself. Hopefully I'll be able to snap some dramatic urban shots.
