'Puente De Luz', the newest Toronto pedestrian bridge. Chilean sculptor Francisco Gazitua, 2012

Puente De Luz ('Bridge of Light'), the newest Toronto pedestrian bridge opened to the public in December 2012. Designed by Chilean sculptor Francisco Gazitua (structural engineer Peter Sheffield), and is now useful crossing in the new Concord CityPlace neighbourhood. These photos are from my inaugural crossing earlier in July. The many details on the bridge have a nautical theme. (too many details in my opinion)

I like how the horizontal stripes (this year Toronto hottest fashion) relate to the shadows and the RBC building lines.

When CityPlace is completed, there will be 19 highrise and seven midrise towers in this one 44-acre urban block, about 8,000 homes in total. This is a place for young (or old) urbanites without kids, as the units are very small.
