When Viljo Revell designed Toronto City Hall back in the sixties, the podium roof was for grand entries; you could drive up the ramp and walk right into the Council Chambers. It never quite worked out that way and was pretty much ignored for years. Not any more; this weekend Mayor Miller cut the ribbon on a spectacular new green roof. The normally reserved Lisa Rochon raves in the Globe and Mail: It “is so impressive in its landscape detail and magnetism that it warrants the drop command: Drop everything and go directly to it.”
