I was waiting to turn left when I took this shot early in April showing part of Graduate House, a residence for graduate students at U of Toronto, constructed in 2000. Designed by architect Thom Mayne of the California firm Morphosis , the building has been controversial since even before its groundbreaking with much of the surrounding residential neighbourhood firmly against the design. It was the cantilevered sign with the hanging O that caused most of the negative reactions although many dislike the darkness of the structure. The O is the last letter in a ceramic-frit sign on the glass which spells out University of Toronto but to my mind the rest of the sign is too pale and all you notice is the O. I'm amazed no one has remedied this and it drives me crazy every time I go by!
