L'hôtel de ville de Toronto, Ontario, Canada est l'un des monuments les plus distinctifs de la ville, constituant le logotype de l'institution municipale. Il est le fruit de l’un des plus grands concours d'architecture jamais organisés par une ville. Le jury international composé pour l’occasion doit juger 520 projets venant de 42 pays. En 1958, le maire de Toronto, Nathan Phillips, annonce le lauréat du concours : il s’agit de Viljo Revell, un architecte finlandais basé à Helsinki. Les travaux commencent en 1961 et l’inauguration officielle a lieu quatre ans plus tard ; en même temps que celle du Nathan Phillips Square, situé aux pieds du bâtiment ; soit le 13 septembre 1965, date à laquelle il remplace l'ancien hôtel de ville de Toronto construit en 1899 et depuis, classé au patrimoine historique national canadien en 1984.

    guestBook Livre d'Or/ chelseajchow/ fév 27, 2015 Toronto City Hall

    Toronto’s city hall is so much more than just a municipal government building. It is a space for the people of Toronto; in addition to housing our city council, it has a daycare, a public library, a green roof, and a public space that is used for festivals and recreation. Named Nathan Phillips Square after a former Toronto mayor, the space hosts an abundance of cultural activity such as winter ice skating, art installations, jazz festivals, dance practices, farmers’ markets, cultural celebration days, and New Year’s parties. A modern behemoth of concrete and glass, it is grand and strong – just like much of our city – and reminds me that I love my city and am proud to call myself a Torontonian.

  • Queen Street, Toronto - I Am A Street Car
    guestBook Livre d'Or/ brivanular/ jan 18, 2015 Queen Street, Toronto - I Am A Street Car

    This photo was taken on the evening of Nuit Blanche, an art festival put on in Toronto. Every year, the traffic is not aloud through Queen Street, and you can walk in the middle of the street. I got there early enough to experience a beautiful sunset behind the buildings of Toronto, with its colours reflecting off of the metal rails the street cars usually travel on. It was a surreal feeling to walk in the middle of such a busy street, and a great way to explore Toronto in a different way.

  • Downtown Toronto - Toronto Skyline
    guestBook Livre d'Or/ mjyoung/ jan 10, 2015 Downtown Toronto - Toronto Skyline

    I created a Chinese ink painting depicting the skyline of Toronto as viewed from the Toronto Island. Since I am a proud Chinese Canadian citizen, I incorporated aspects from my childhood and from both of my parents. My mother was born in Hong Kong. so I felt inclined to use Chinese inks and rice paper. My father was born in the city of Toronto, so when I was young our family would go downtown. I remember the feeling of freedom and of exploration.Even now I feel a sense of belonging and of positive energy in the bustling crowd. I think I combined subject matter and styles in a fusion which represent my identity as a Canadian.

  • Nathan Phillips Square - Mystical Feel
    guestBook Livre d'Or/ bigsparks/ jan 7, 2015 Nathan Phillips Square - Mystical Feel

    Winter has a special touch here in Toronto. Why stay indoors when you can enjoy the perks of the cold weather? Nathan Phillips Square, oh how beautiful this place is during the cold winter days. In my opinion skating has never felt more surreal and breath taking. You will be surrounded by the most eye-appealing and vibrant holiday lightings and music to add to a better skating experience. Nathan Phillips Square gives skating a whole new feel and frankly, what better way for a Canadian to enjoy winter than to skate? A place which has been around for years and is undoubtedly my most preferred.

    This image was taken at the Toronto Pride 2014 event. This image relates to my Canadian identity because I am gay and I am also a Canadian. Toronto pride was very liberating for me. It was an environment that I could be myself and appreciate being a gay Canadian. I am glad to live in such an awesome country like Canada where I can be myself and attend LGBTQ festivities like this.

    I'm Emma Stojkovski, I am 17 years old and I live in Oshawa. This photo relates to my Canadian identity because I am first generation Canadian; however, Canada has given my parents a chance to get their Canadian citizenship which made it possible for me to be in this wonderful country, and even though I am not from Canada, I have never felt any discrimination against myself.
