Why did you tear down all the cool old shit, Toronto?
These are always excellent, but this one is truly magical. It’s like a portal into the past; a shimmering dream of time travel. The cow’s POV really makes it.
Though a supporter of keeping old shit, the TD Towers was a good trade off here.
Yeah, it was either an interesting but undistinct alley or Mies van der Rohe’s magnum opus.
