Celebrating Architecture this Wednesday with @daniellibeskind and @romtoronto Inspired by the ROM’s gem and mineral collection, architect Daniel Libeskind sketched the initial concept on paper napkins while attending a family wedding at the ROM. The design was quickly dubbed the 'crystal' because of its crystalline shape. " Architecture in our time is no longer an introvert's business. On the contrary, the creation of communicative, stunning and unexpected architecture signals a bold re-awakening of the civic life of the museum and the city." - Daniel Libeskind . . . #architect #torontoarchitects #architecturaldesign #architectsdigest #custombuild #luxuryarchitecture #Canadianarchitect #architecture #architecturedesign #architectinspiration #architecturesketch #architecturemodel #beautifularchitecture #uniquedesigns #luxuryarchitecture #TorontoArchitect #architectdesignstudio #customarchitecture #architectural #architecture_lovers #architecture_hunter #architectuur #architectureporn #architecturedaily

Prominent Toronto architect Abraham B. Pipher built his own family home in 1889. After years of neglect and conversion into apartments, my clients hired me to convert it back into a single family residence. At the time it was known in the neighbourhood as β€œThe Pumpkin House” due to the unfortunate paint colour on the brick. It takes brave clients to undertake such a challenging project, and as I walked past the house last night, years after completing the project and seeing the landscaping filling in, I am glad they took that chance. #torontoarchitect #torontoheritage #residentialdesign #toronto #heritagetoronto

My sister just showed me this... a birthday card I sent to my brother-in-law maybe 40 years ago. Cartooning was one of those skills we developed at architecture school in the 1970’s that I really enjoyed, and being able to draw a picture of me and Jay dressed like that, dancing on a hill while juggling tennis balls in front of the Ontario farmhouse they lived in.... I smile now. I think I might post more. #handmadecards #torontoarchitect

Lawrence Park South offers a slower-paced environment and will appeal to those who enjoy spending time in green spaces. Most areas in this neighbourhood are quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour. Finally, the greenery in this part of Toronto is very prominent; reaching public green spaces, like Blythwood - Sherwood Ravine, is very easy from most locations in the neighbourhood, since the majority of properties have one that is easy to get to and there are around 10 parks close by for residents to explore. In addition, residents will find that most streets have great tree coverage.

Transportation Lawrence Park South allows property owners to move around by several modes of transportation. Active home buyers will appreciate the quite pedestrian-friendly nature of this part of Toronto; many daily needs are convenient to carry out without having to use a vehicle, and a variety of businesses are nearby. The bike is a good method of transportation in Lawrence Park South because the cycling infrastructure is quite extensive. Travelling by public transit is straightforward in this neighbourhood. In particular, the neighbourhood is linked by about 10 bus lines, and bus stops are typically nearby. Cars are also a reasonably good means of transportation in Lawrence Park South. It is easy to park.

The 100+ year old smoke stack of the Don Valley Brickworks, looking as sharp as ever. It's always nice to see buildings and structures that are still standing after a century. Done right, your building should easily outlast you, so its important to consider your exit strategy when building something new. Whether you want to sell in 5 years or gift to the grandkids, planning for the future will impact how we design today. . . . . . #architect #architecture #residentialarchitect #residentialarchitecture #Ontarioarchitect #canadianarchitect #Torontoarchitect #smokestack #brickworks #brick #stack #donvalley #planning #lifecycle #design #building #lookup #architecturalphotography #archigram #archilovers #archdaily #archiporn #architecture_hunter #architecturephotography

Sometimes the very best things have no purpose, other than to exist and amuse. This was taken from inside an architectural folly on the Toronto waterfront... a giant sculptural concrete sphere that you can enter, just a few steps from Lake Ontario.

Today is World Environment Day and we thought to celebrate it showing something we created for EDIT, the 10-day biennial celebration that was held in 2017 inside the abandoned Unilever detergent factory in Toronto’s Port Lands. In collaboration with Stefano Pujatti and Thomas Brown Architects we created "We Are The Bear". This work, with its pool of oil and ice walls talks about the impact we had on our world and the necessity to find a new balance. If you want to know more keep on reading, slide the pics to see more. β € We Are The Bearβ € by Stefano Pujatti (Elastico SPA), Kregg Fordyce (KFA Architects) and Chris Kubbinga (Thomas Brown Architects).β € The installation displays a Carrara Marble origami bear standing in a pool of oil in front of video footage of calving glaciers, evidence of the impact of the melting polar ice cap. The evocative space of the compressor room reflecting on the oil pool creates a dramatic aspect to the installation. β € The polar bear, the pool of oil and the ice wall are all elements belonging to and representative of Canada.β € WE ARE THE BEAR, because as we come to understand the impact we have had on our world, we must have the courage to stop the disrespect of our land and balance the cycle.β € WE ARE THE BEAR references some of Canada's most powerful and symbolic elements to cast light on climate change and its impact on the Arctic, an essential part of our national identity.β € WE ARE THE BEAR because we are both part of a continuous natural cycle in which all living things are intertwined. In many Aboriginal cultures, the bear is a sacred animal honoring the virtue of courage.β € WE ARE THE BEAR as we come to understand the cost of climate change. Disruption of natural cycles may force a global migration. Humans moving to new territories, travelling in unbearable conditions to survive.β € WE ARE THE BEAR, because as we come to understand the impact we have had on our world, we must have the courage to stop the disrespect of our land and balance the cycle.β € WE ARE THE BEAR is a call to change. An acknowledgement of those who paid a price for the greatness of this country.
