Season’s First Snow

I don’t know if this is early or not as I forgot to blog when the first snow fell last year, but last night it snowed in Toronto. Our first snow of the season and the first snow in the new condo. It was the light, fluffy kind that reminds me of the snow we often see on Christmas morning. So pretty.

(I must remember this post and this sentiment come mid-February when we’re buried in the white stuff and I’m fed up with it all!)

1) our first snow

Following up on the Art Gallery of Ontario post, Toronto has been very fortunate of late to witness some great public institution renovations and new buildings that are truly gorgeous. In addition to Frank Gehry’s AGO, we’ve had:

The Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts
Architect: Diamond/Schmidt

Cots: $181M

2 & 3) the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts

The Sharp Centre for Design at The Ontario College of Art and Design
Architect: Will Aslop
Cost: $42.5M

4) The Sharp Centre for Design … surreal or what?

The Royal Ontario Museum and the Michael Lee Chin Crystal
Architect: Bregman + Hamann Architects working with Studio Daniel Libeskind

Cost: $240M

    It’s a good thing I got new snow tires. But the first snow was pretty though.

    I like the buildings but not too sure about the Sharp Center. I may have to see that live to appreciate it. Happy first snow!
