What does the doctor say?
The doctor should know… he is staring right at the answer. Yes, it’s still there, looking as good as ever.
The great bow-shaped curve of this building was a perfect idea for its location, sitting atop a hill overlooking a vast expanse of the Don Valley. It always reminded me of a ship’s bridge, with a commanding view of the landscape below. It looks just as good from the other direction, impressive when seen from the Bloor Viaduct subway or a car on the Parkway. A rare harmony of architecture and geography.
I’m glad they kept it, even though it won’t look the same, hemmed in by the huge glass box going up beside it. So it goes.
