Condo uses brick to marry Toronto's Victorian past and modernist present
from Globe and Mail
What does a brick want to be? That's the sort of question that architect Louis Kahn used to ask his students, and for Kahn the answers could be surprising. He employed brick, that ancient material, to produce buildings that were unique and distinctly modernist. But what if a brick wants to be part of a condo — a solid and sculptural component of the 21st century city? That's the conclusion of Toronto firm architectsAlliance, whose design for 383 Sorauren Ave. sets a valuable precedent for Canadian architecture — nodding to history while exploring new ground.
