Photographer's Note

Air Miles Tower

The Air Miles Tower, 438 University Avenue, Toronto, headquarter of Air Miles Canada's, is not a building with an eccentric exotic design, but stands out for its refined design.

The plan with shifted blocks creates a staggered façade. The glass curtain façade is creating an optical spatial woven façade by the use of horizontal layers that gives the building a very attractive graphical pattern.
Due to the varying brightness of the reflections if the layers and the jagged structure, a very lively three-dimensional image is created.

The building was designed by Omar Yeung Architect & Associates and was commissioned in 1992.

I used different focal lengths for the three photos of this presentation

■ Picture 1: ◄ 50 mm – close up►

■ Picture 2: ◄ 23 mm – full facade ►

■ Picture 3: ◄ 16 mm – panorama view►

The skyscraper left of the Air Miles Tower is the Residences of the RCMI - Royal Canadian Military Institute, high 145 m, designed by Zeidler Partnership Architects
