Another trip to Toronto and I was blown away by the city’s ingenious architecture. Modern buildings stand next to buildings from the last century and have been beautifully integrated into Toronto’s skyline. Quirky street art decorates the facade of buildings. Great wood architectural details at the Art Gallery of Ontario: hallway gallery and wooden staircase designed by Frank Gehry. Great historical buildings in what once was the home of Gooderham and Worts Distillery. The Distillery District’s buildings now house cafes, restaurants and shops. Advertisements
There’s no better way to explore a city than to wander around with no direction in mind. That’s when you stumble upon the most interesting things. Here are a few snapshots we took around the city of Toronto. We tried to capture the charm and diverse architectural flavour of the city.
After a delicious breakfast with the family, a group of us decided to head to Queen Street West for a walk. We rode Toronto’s tram the “rocket” to the intersection of Queen Street W and Spadina, also known as the Fashion District. This place is paradise for someone like me who loves fabric and sewing. Fabric store after fabric store line the street. This part of Toronto has cool home decor stores, eclectic shops, and hipster cafes and bars. We had a quick pint at Squirly’s.
