With world renowned architecture comes world-renowned photography. Yansong Ma is one of the most recognizable names in architecture, and the Absolute Towers gained worldwide attention when we linked up with him for the project.
Last weekend, we did it up at BuskerFest for the third year in a row. This year, our newest mixed-use development project, Garrison Point, had their tent set up along Yonge Street, right in the heart of the action.
The L Tower is quickly becoming a Toronto landmark and a notable part of our skyline, and Torontonians are taking notice! Architecture photographers and die-hard Toronto lovers alike are on the same page when it comes to the building; the L Tower is very photogenic! We've seen hundreds of photos of L Tower being shared online and now, we are sharing some of our favourites.
BuskerFest is back! Last week we interviewed Lisa Lottie, a street performer who is making her debut BuskerFest appearance this year. This time around, we chat to Heather Chappell and Vince Peets, a talented couple that makes up one of the most fun musical duos performing at the festival.
It has been almost 2 years since Yansong Ma came to Toronto to see his finished work at the Absolute Towers in Mississauga. Since then, Ma and his architecture firm MAD Architects have moved on to a number of projects. Here is an overview of some of the things he has been working on lately.
Buskerfest is one of Toronto’s most entertaining festivals. Since 1999, street performers from all around the world have gathered in Toronto to perform on our streets to help raise money for Epilepsy Toronto. Cityzen has been a sponsor of the festival for several years and we are proud to support Buskerfest again this year.
