2009 Favorite things….spaces from Toronto to Boston

It’s holiday time and that means lists…

We all make them, perhaps yours is full of wishes for Santa or simply a ‘to do‘ list during this hectic time of year.  Even Oprah has been known to make them, her most famous being her list of favorite things.

Feeling inspired by Lady O, this year I’ve decided to make a list of my own…of my favorite structures.  If you read my blog regularly, you will know that I am a Torontonian living in Boston, so it seems fit for me to make one list for each city. So here it goes….

Top 5 favourite A&D masterpieces in Toronto:

1. SHARP CENTRE OF DESIGN ~ONTARIO COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN by Alsop Architects

2. ROYAL ONTARIO MUSEUM by Daniel Libeskind

3. ART GALLERY OF ONTARIO by Frank Gehry

4. ABSOLUTE CONDO by MAD Studio & Burka Architects

5. CN Tower by Canadian National Railway


Top 5 places of greatness in Boston:

1. Christian Science Center by I.M. Pei

2. Boston Public Library by McKim, Mead & White

3. Hancock Place by I.M. Pei

4. Carpenter Center by Le Corbusier
