Toronto's New Corus Quay Building Spawns Public Art

A shimmering combination of Brancusian shapes, swarm robotics and corporate ceiling design, the new installation by British design firm Troika is an image of hope for the city of Toronto. It's housed in the city's new Corus Quay, a project of economic development corporation Build Toronto that's intended to revitalize business along the city's waterfront on Lake Ontario. It's a simple, benevolent image for one of the city's industrial districts, but we wonder just how complex the patterns can get: do the fish seem to swim away if you're hostile?
