In Toronto, it's gotta be the Novotel Hotel in North York. Just look at it, a pink/purple facade with greenish glass. :runaway:

Thank god it's nestled away up there in North York. :bash:

In Vancouver I would say it's Harbour centre. I never seen what's so nice about it, it's just a commie block with a observation tower on top. The design never apealed to me, it's not much better than the Genex Tower in Belgrade.


In Toronto I would say the Toronto Star Building at the foot of Yonge Street.

I for one admire brutalism, especially when it makes such a powerful statement.

In Winnipeg I'd say it's the downtown Radisson hotel. It doesn't look like anything TOO terrible from the front but if you see it from the back it's got to be the ugliest thing ever built. Think Genex without the aesthetic appeal.

You're right dude, pretty ugly. Raw concrete for the whole tower. :puke:


Anyone have a pic of the Van CBC building?

^Reminds me of the monolithical Manulife centre in Toronto - 51 floors of pure raw concrete.:drool:

I don't know how other people feel about Toronto's CBC building but I find it quite nice:

^Heheh, I love big big concrete structures, coming from Belgrade - where the Genex rules all it's in my blood.;)

Manulife is one of my favourite Toronto towers.:cheers:

Yup, TO's the place for me - well and mostly any other Eastern European city.:D

I hate kitchy PoMo, like the ones gracing most of Dubai and Shanghai.:puke:
This building is just sickening...

Dear god, this pic is giving me heartburn...


Good lord, what the **** is that?


What happened here?


Jesus Christ, this is gonna give me diaharrea


This is also highly disturbing...


Two testicles on the bottom and two halfway up the shaft? Innovative I suppose...


Ok, final one, the only building allowed to put a UFO type thingy on the top and get away with it is Genex, this is simply Las Vegas mixed with Dubai.:nono:

Haha! Just looking at those pics makes you wonder wheres all the flying cars
Exactly, it's like the Jetsons or smth. Horrible architecture imo, luckily Toronto lacks in that department.
