Alsop Reveals Filmport Design

Every time a new Will Alsop building is announced, I can’t help but get excited. The man’s designs are so original and just so damn fun, they always seem to send a jolt through the industry. The recently unveiled Filmport Tower will serve as a mxed-use gateway structure / flagship building for the new Filmport Port Land complex in Toronto, which if all goes according to plan, will become the largest film studio in North America….outside of California, of course.At first I thought that exterior cladding was red painted whatever but it’s actually Cor-Ten steel. Alot of Cor-Ten steel. Not sure how I feel about that yet.Opinions?
