Kollectif

Clearview Residence / Altius Architecture
Arch Daily
Designed for a local artist to enjoy, this residence is located just south of Collingwood, in the heart of the Clearview area. A broad selection of sustainable technologies, including a geothermal lake loop and green house set this project apart from others in the area.

But Thier + Curran Architects (TCA) did just that, at 95 King St. E. in downtown Hamilton, ON. Armed with a modest $3 million construction budget, the firm converted a building that was well over 100 years old into an arts centre with a multi-purpose gallery/event space, eight artist studios, a meeting room and 12 loft apartments.

Martin Dubois — « Bibliothèque Monique-Corriveau: du culte à la culture »
Kollectif
Une œuvre moderne des plus réussies L'église Saint-Denys a été érigée il y a 50 ans, en 1964, selon les plans de Jean-Marie Roy (1925-2011), architecte dont j'ai écrit la biographie professionnelle en 2012. Cette œuvre qui allie sobriété, pureté et harmonie est surtout remarquable par la silhouette particulière de sa toiture qui rappelle l'aspect d'une immense tente gonflée par le vent dont les arceaux sont profondément ancrés dans le sol.

What King Street used to look like in Toronto
BlogTO
Is there a thoroughfare as historically important as King Street in Toronto? It would face stiff competition from Yonge and Queen (formerly Lot) streets, to be sure, but it's not for nothing that it bears the name of King George III, who ruled during the time that the Town of York was founded. Once home to the mighty Massey Ferguson buildings (stretching west from Massey St.), the Otto Higel Building (at Bathurst), Upper Canada College (at John), the Rossin House Hotel (at York), and the Toronto Star Building (near Bay), the street has lost some remarkable structures over time.
