Looks like a cheap version of what's in Busan, SK.

I'm glad we're not looking at another box like structure that this city is famous for!

That would make more sense if it wasn't another boxy, sail like tower.

Greybrook, one of the partners here, has these two images up on their site, labeled "Previous design from MAD Architects and architectsAlliance - not current".

Just so you know.

I'm still on the fence about the HPA design, but this one is just ridiculous. Definite LOL.

how would a building like that actually function? Both structurally and in terms of use, services, etc..
I'm picturing a Gateway Arch-style elevator system, but beyond that, I'm too baffled by that design to even start thinking about it without getting a headache

We can laugh all we want but something like that will probably get built in China or Dubai without anyone there blinking an eye

Exactly what I thought of too.... and it would instantly become one of the most photographed buildings in the world. In lots of countries the reaction would be positive and they'd end up building it.

Toronto sure does conform to its ultra conservative reputation. We should just build a box and marvel at how innovative it is.

I think it would've been a brave and internationally unique building if built.

People in Toronto are crazy for a simple 3D "TORONTO". Imagine how popular something like that would be in our city.
