Toronto Off The Beaten Path: 335 reviews and 496 photos
When you strolling down Queen Street West and look north on McCaul Street, you will no doubt be struck by this unusual building. The building is the Sharp Centre of Design and is part of the Ontario College of Art and Design. It seems to defy gravity as it hangs in the air. The building is actually held up by a series of 12 pencil shaped pillors and a centre core. The Sharp Centre of Design was built for $42 million dollars. The box shaped table top is 9m high, 31m wide and 84m long and consists of two floors which are occupied by administrative offices and classrooms. The idea here was create an annex for the Ontario College of Art and Design by building over the older building and without taking up, in fact expanding, surrounding park space. For more about the design of the building check out the website posted below.
