Info zum Gebaeude von Wikipedia:

Brookfield Place (formerly BCE Place) is an office complex in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. ... The complex contains 242,000 square metres (2,604,866 sq ft) of office space, and consists of two towers, the Bay Wellington Tower and the TD Canada Trust Tower, linked by the six-storey Allen Lambert Galleria. Brookfield Place is also the home of the Hockey Hall of Fame.


The Allen Lambert Galleria, sometimes described as the "crystal cathedral of commerce", is an atrium designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava which connects Bay Street with Heritage Square. The six storey high pedestrian thoroughfare is structured by eight freestanding supports on each side of the Galleria, which branch out into parabolic shapes evoking a forest canopy[3] or a tree-lined avenue because of the presence of building facades along the sides of the structure.

The Galleria was the result of an international competition and was incorporated into the development in order to satisfy the City of Toronto's public art requirements.[4] It is a frequently photographed space, and is heavily featured as a backdrop for news reports, as well as TV and film productions.

The parabolic, arched roof that Santiago Calatrava created for the assembly hall of the Wohlen High School in Switzerland is generally considered to be a precursor of the vaulted, parabolic ceiling in the Galleria.


Ein Muss für Halsverrenker :)

Thank you very much, Mille Grazie & herzlichen Dank fuer die Kommentare!

The building was designed by famous Spanish Architect Calatrava, who among other buildings also designed the railway station in Liège-Guillemins in Belgium (Pano 6796 by Christoph Seger) oder, damals noch viel bescheidener den Bahnhof Stadelhofen in Zuerich!
