I would have to agree. This Calatrava atrium in Toronto is one of the best I've seen anywhere. It is sandwiched between the TD Canada Trust Tower and Bay-Wellington Tower.

The Burj Al-Arab looks like an inferior/tacky version of the Jin Mao's.

Certainly not as nice to my eye as the design fails to get across the height anywhere near aswell...

They both look like they were going for a 'texture' look - i.e., whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

Jin Mao most certainly beats it in that respect.

I suppose it depends on what you reckon they were going for, or what you're looking for in particular.

Burj Al Arab is too over the top and could never compare to Jin Mao. Its just too much turn down the volume.

I say the BCE Place in Toronto is the best atrium in the world designed by Calatrava..

It is simply beatiful and overwhelming when your walking through it and it used to be a road inbetween to skyscrapers and now they filled that road with this masterpiece!

Hence the old building on the left with the gate and door that used to face the road




Just Amazing, Go Toronto !
