The Danish architect from Bjarke Ingels Group says:

King Toronto Condos team described the design’s “soft topography” as a human-made homage to mountainous landscapes. The residential volumes—which rise to a maximum height of 17 storeys—would be clad in “stone natural to Ontario,”

The project’s massing strategy sees the modern volumes set back from the heritage buildings along King Street, preserving their street-level prominence while visually inviting pedestrians into the “secret courtyard” within. Ingels described the greenscaped space as a “Canadian hemlock forest.” Alongside the extensive landscaping—appointed by Public Work—Ingels’s design allows for “integrated public art throughout the courtyard,” giving the art a more vital presence in BIG’s manufactured landscape.

Describing BIG’s architectural style as a manifestation of “pragmatic idealism,” Ingels presented the project as both an icon and a powerful social incubator. Yet, while the declarative design would certainly give the city an impressive new icon, the social impact of the project is more difficult to predict.

While much of the Bjarke Ingels Group’s (BIG) portfolio is characterized by the sort of big-name architectural statement pieces that are sometimes—perhaps justifiably—derided as showy and self-indulgent, Ingel’s presentation elucidated a deftly sophisticated grasp of the social ramifications of built form.

533 King Condo, also known as King Toronto Condos is undoubtedly one of our city’s most exciting upcoming developments, and it is one that is almost certain to become an architectural icon for Toronto. Perhaps it will even succeed in fulfilling Ingel’s vision of making the modern city a more vibrant and socially cohesive space, if not quite the landscape of our collective dreams.
