Toronto-Dominion Centre Review
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, a virtuoso of modern architecture, designed this five-building masterwork, though he died before its completion in 1985. As with his acclaimed Seagram Building in New York, Mies stripped the TD Centre's buildings to their skin and bones of bronze-color glass and black-metal I-beams. The tallest building, the Toronto Dominion Bank Tower, is 56 stories high. The only decoration consists of geometric repetition, and the only extravagance is the use of rich materials, such as marble counters and leather-covered furniture. In summer, the plazas and grass are full of office workers eating lunch and listening to one of many free outdoor concerts. Inside the low-rise square banking pavilion at King and Bay streets is a virtually intact Mies interior.
Inside the TD Centre's Waterhouse Tower is the Museum of Inuit Art (79 Wellington St. W 416/982–8473 Free Weekdays 8–6, weekends 10–4 St. Andrew). It's one of just a few such galleries in North America. The collection, equal to that of the Smithsonian, focuses on the bank's renowned collection of Inuit art from the vast Arctic region in northern Canada.
