Inline Skyline

Toronto's King Street passes through disparate neighbourhoods representative of Toronto's nature. Walking along, the skyline shifts with these changes, engulfing pedestrians in the downtown core or disappearing near the developing areas.

Rather than looking on the built environment directly, the focus is on the sky framed by its surroundings.

Intersection by intersection, the sky was recorded and transformed into a formwork for concrete.

The object was then sent to be modified by other participants in the competition before being cast.

The concrete artifact was exhibited at the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Conference in Toronto, Ontario in 2007.
