My newest piece for Urban Toronto was published today. It's about the new Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, a beautiful building designed by Toronto's own Diamond Schmitt Architects. It's being called among the most significant international buildings to be designed by a Canadian architect, and it's truly stunning.
The real pleasure for me however was in being invited to press day at the architect's office, and more so, to have a chance to hear Jack Diamond himself explain the design rationale of this iconic arts and cultural centre. He was charming and affable and a pleasure to watch. Click here to read the piece.
