A skyline marked by skyscrapers
On the shores of Lake Ontario we find Toronto, a multicultural city dominated by high-rise skyscrapers and mostly contemporary architecture, but also with vestiges of Gothic and Art Deco architecture. The biggest claim to visit Toronto is the CN Tower, the fourth highest in the world, although today some newer buildings are equally a claim for all lovers of architecture and design.
Toronto hosts a very diverse contemporary architecture, beginning with the expansion of the Royal Ontario Museum by Daniel Libeskind, the Ford York Library of KPMB Architects or the University of Toronto’s Jackman Law Building developed by B + H Architects, just to name a few of the most well-known public buildings. These are followed by a long list of private homes with equally formidable architecture devised and built by architectural firms such as Dubbeldam Architecture + Design, tongtong, rzlbd or Williamson Chong Architects.
