Earth Science Centre, U of Toronto


This part of the Earth Science Centre at U of Toronto has fascinated me ever since I first spotted it a few years ago. There are so many details to see and discover the more you look at it. Enlarge the pic to see it better and you will find 2 shovels hanging from the wall - these have lights behind them. The whole mechanism that is set up to look as if it opens the loading door must reference some type of mining/geology equipment. (any ideas?). I have been unable to find out any info on this structure but will keep digging!

You are right RedPat the symbols on this building will be readable to someone. Wonder what the butterfly lookalike top right is for?

I would love to see those doors in motion. All those gizmos make me wonder what goes on too!

The details make this building most interesting, worth more than just a glance.

What a fascinating façade, Pat! I like the overall effect and would even be content if everything was just decorative! Nice shot.

Actually, as much as the details on the building, what I noticed were the (presumably) glacial erratics on the 2 wee patches of grass.
