Yesterday, architect Frank Gehry along with David Mirvish went to city hall to discuss whether four designated heritage buildings should be demolished to make way for the proposed Mirvish+Gehry towers on King West. While the decision will be discussed at a city council meeting in December, Gehry raised eyebrows with his comment that there are "only two buildings in the city worth saving: Old City Hall and Osgoode Hall." Some of these Toronto Tweeters would argue that our city has many historical sites worth preserving. Do you agree?
Gehry's definition of heritage seems to encompass any building he graced in his childhood.— SymmetryDevelopments (@symmetrydevelop) November 19, 2013
So how would Frank Gehry feel if we tore down his AGO? WTF?http://t.co/4Q3cVn84bO— Laurence Lui (@larrylarry) November 19, 2013
