Santiago Calatrava Architect
Project Funding: This case studies represents research done with funding from the Steel Structures Education Foundation of Canada and TRACE of the University of Waterloo.
Background: In 1987 an invited competition was held as part of the City of Toronto's public art requirements. The purpose was to find ideas for the spaces between the Canada Trust Tower Lobby, the Clarkson Gordon Building and Garden Court, the Bay Wellington Tower, 22 Front Street and the Bank of Montreal (Hockey Hall of Fame).
The end result of the competition was the construction of BCE Place, Heritage Square and Galleria. The project forms a light filled link in the downtown business core of Toronto -- an urban space that is at once a vital attraction for locals and visitors alike, both day and night.
Galleria and Heritage Square was a collaborative
