Black buildings are definitely dramatic. Beautiful set alongside more light or colorful skyscrapers too.

Toronto Dominion Centre built in the late 1960s in Toronto. It's probably the largest collection of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe towers in the world. If you don't appreciate how a 'box' can be beautiful or sexy, you need to see these buildings in person.

From a distance they are less spectacular, but still elegant.
