A city’s architecture is the brick and mortar expression of its true nature. A variety of building styles through the ages denotes the passing of time and the occurrence of historical events. Landmark structures like the Mirvish + Gehry condo project stand out amid the bulk of construction and stand the test of time. Not every edifice is worthy of addition to the list of iconic projects. In this case, it is a no brainer. The most memorable structures catch our attention and become tourist magnets. Everyone wants to see a novel amalgam of design and surrounding space, the hallmark of Frank Gehry’s brilliant conceptions. The dynamics of architecture of Projectcore are not always well understood but the visual impact is inherent in every soaring façade and undulating surface. When Gehry’s hands touch a project, it becomes imbued with palpable life.
