The roof on New City Hall.
The building that has been used in many a sci-fi movie and has doubled for space ships over the years now boasts a beautiful green roof. For years this area was blocked off from public access - completely foolish considering it is City Hall - for the people of the city.
I wandered up there Saturday afternoon to escape the madness that is the Toronto Outdoor Art exhibit. I found an oasis in the middle of the city. There were maybe 2 or 3 other people up there and it was quiet. There were plenty of seating areas and beautiful views of the city and Nathan Phillips Square from the promenade all the way around City Hall.
Of course there were no signs on the ground level to tell anyone that this oasis existed.
I also noticed something that was done in Reykjavik - the old City Hall is reflected in the glass of the New City Hall... but unlike in Reykjavik - I don't think it was done as an artistic element.
Or even planned.
