Design stage is pretty much done, as they have submitted their DP already. No construction for a while, as the DP is still under review, and also I believe these are condos, so there would still be a sales period.Hi,
Has Construction Started on this Sites or is It still in the Design/Construction Stages?
Also the whole experiment in postmodern architecture made people realize that it wasn't modernist aesthetics that were making buildings inhuman. You can't humanize a building simply by slapping on some historicist/postmodern decoration. Modernism is totally compatible with a vibrant, human-scaled cityscape.These are great. Funny how the mid century modern influence seems to be getting a second life after years of criticism for being too big/monolithic/inhuman. I think what's different this time is they are less oppressive and more playful, for example with how this design has a gradually thickening exoskeleton cladding and inverse on the other tower. It reminds me of increasingly bolded fonts or line thickness in MS Paint.
Was going to say just that. It has elements that reminds me a bit of Vancouver House that is u/c at the end of the Granville Street bridge. Bucci nailed it with this design.Just noticed that the "frames" around the windows transition from thick at thinner from top to bottom on one building, and thin to thicker on the other... Very subtle and very attractive
Whaaaaaaaat?! I actually just felt a rush of elation flow over me. Pleeease let this be true!I have been informed that this is planned as purpose rental project. That is a departure for Bucci. So there will be no waiting for pre-sales to get started.
Oh man don't tease me! I'd freaking love that! I never dared to dream that it even could be until you mentioned it to be honest. I just figured that brut was a four letter word to most designers and developers these days. This thing would look stunning in concrete. Sadly, If you look closely enough at the render you can see some rectangular paneling of some sort breaking up the finish of the exterior.I don't know if it's been mentioned already, but does anyone know what the material is going to be? It would be so cool if they were beton brut. The buildings would be a huge thermal sink, but so cool.
Excellent. The way rental units are getting absorbed these days, we've got a decent chance of seeing this getting built.I have been informed that this is planned as purpose rental project. That is a departure for Bucci. So there will be no waiting for pre-sales to get started.
