Forma Featured In Architectural Digest: See Inside Frank Gehry’s Tallest Residential Skyscrapers Ever
Though Frank Gehry has designed dozens of buildings—the Bilbao Guggenheim in Spain and the Dancing House in Prague—only one of them, New York by Gehry at 8 Spruce Street in Manhattan’s financial district, is a skyscraper. However, that won’t be the case for long. The Canadian architect recently unveiled new images of his latest project, Forma Condos, a pair of residential towers that will soon be built in Toronto’s Entertainment District on King Street West. Paolo Ferrari, a local interior architect, will design the interiors of both buildings.
Over 2,000 luxury condominiums will take up most floors in both the 84-story western and 73-story eastern towers, and an extension campus for the Ontario College of Art and Design will also be part of the development.
In classic Gehry form, the towers are designed in a deconstructivist style, though not as fragmented as some of his previous work. Both towers are constructed from offset blocks stacked at alternating angles with a reflective glass and stainless steel cladding on the façade. The result is a building that appears to exist at a constant rotation, twisting and turning and offering a distinct look from every angle. This illusion is meant to evolve further over the course of the day as the light changes and reflects off the geometric exterior.
