ABOUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH
A merger between the Bank of Toronto and Dominion Bank in the early 1960s led to several failed proposals for a new headquarters building. Philanthropist Phyllis Lambert on the project's advisory board interviewed and ultimately hired the German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for the job working in tandem with the local architects. Owners Cadillac Fairview required an entire city block, leading to the demolition of notable historical premises. In its place rose the Bank Tower, the first building in the complex to be completed in 1967. At 730ft, it was at the time Canada's tallest building. Mies would never see the design realised before completion, passing away in 1969. The commission is considered his last major commercial work. Photographed here by Hungarian photographer Balthazar Korab in 1973, Mies' pavilion included marble, English Oak and granite, wrapped in steel and glass. – Jordan J. Lloyd
