533 King St W, Toronto, ON, Canada
will be the realization of the combined vision of Westbank, Allied and BIG, a reimagining of the community-building potential of Moshe Safdie’s Habitat 67 and an updating on the glass-and -light innovations first exemplified in the Maison de Verre, in Paris. Bjarke Ingels’ concept for KING Toronto, suggesting a Mediterranean mountain town, will complement the surrounding context and neighbourhood. Similar to Bing Thom’s design for the Westbank project at Broadway and Commercial in Vancouver, BIG’s design at Vancouver House, Gregory Henriquez’s design at Mirvish Village and his finished product in the Woodward’s development in Vancouver, KING Toronto is another example of how to use architecture to solve the challenges of urbanization. Density done effectively, as in these neighbourhoods, is the very medium through which a sense of community can emerge.
Bjarke Ingels Group’s latest development synthesizes urban modernity with the heart of King West’s historical heritage to merge together the downtown public realm. Inspired by Utopian expression, the project’s distinguished design features atypical massing and glass block facade, breaking away from traditional expectations of podium and tower architect and imposing instead a range of pixelated mountains, unique to city streets.
