Heritage reuse by spam_block

Toronto’s Distillery District, the former Gooderham & Worts distillery, a large Victorian-era industrial complex repurposed into boutiques, restaurants, bars and cultural venues, offers a photographer a rich selection of views.

This night shot on Trinity Street combines several different exposures, and is a reprocessing of an earlier posting.

It includes the City Hall, a sunken amphitheatre called The Scoop, office blocks, shops, restaurants, cafes, and a pedestrianized area containing open-air sculptures and water features, including fountains lit by coloured lights.

Inside Out by katherineyoung

The Lloyd’s building (known as the Inside-Out Building) is the home of the insurance institution Lloyd’s of London. It is located on the former site of East India House in Lime Street, in London’s main financial district, the City of London. The building is a leading example of radical Bowellism architecture in which the services for the building, such as ducts and lifts, are located on the exterior to maximise space in the interior. Twenty-five years after completion in 1986, the building received Grade I listing in 2011; it was the youngest structure ever to obtain this status.
The Willis Building is a commercial skyscraper in London named after the primary tenant, Willis Group. It is located on Lime Street in the City of London financial district.
The building was designed by Norman Foster and developed by British Land. It stands opposite the Lloyd’s building and is 125 metres (410 ft) tall, with 26 storeys. It features a “stepped” design, which was intended to resemble the shell of a crustacean, with setbacks rising at 97 m (318 ft) and 68 m (223 ft).
