05 TORONTO EMO­TIONAL RE­SPONSE

Identity - - PORTFOLIO -

Alva Roy de­signed his Tow­ers of Love project, due to be com­pleted in 2022, to be em­blem­atic of an ‘in­ex­tri­ca­ble bond’. The scheme con­sists of 22- and 24-floor struc­tures that stand alone yet to­gether to rep­re­sent the depths of ro­man­tic love. The shorter build­ing ac­com­mo­dates a ho­tel and restau­rant, res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial space while the taller tower will be home to com­mer­cial fa­cil­i­ties as well as res­i­den­tial ar­eas on its higher floors. Roy said: “Ar­chi­tec­ture is not just a wall, a floor and a ceil­ing to house our­selves. It is a place where we con­nect to the deep­est emo­tions of the hu­man heart.”
