Urban landscapes: the battle of old & new

COMMERCE COURT, TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA

Commerce Court is four buildings at the corner of King and Bay Streets, which is the heart of downtown Toronto (Canada’s largest city). Amazingly, the original 34-storey Commerce Court building (built in 1930) was once the tallest structure in the British Empire. The other buildings were completed in the early 1970s. From 1972 to ’76, the 57-storey west tower was the tallest in Canada. I liked putting the old and new architecture together in morning light. Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.
