Description

Exterior view of the Toronto-Dominion Center in Toronto, Ontario designed by Mies van der Rohe and completed in 1967. "The Toronto-Dominion Centre, or T-D Centre, is a cluster of buildings in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada, owned by Cadillac Fairview, and consisting of six towers and a pavilion covered in bronze-tinted glass and black painted steel ... As Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was given virtually a free hand to create Toronto-Dominion Centre, the complex, as a whole and in its details, is a classic example of his unique take on the International style, and represents the end the evolution of Mies' North American period, which began with his 1957 Seagram Building in New York City,"--from Toronto, Canada by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in Architectuul.
