Calatrava + Nizam

Santiago Calatrava's 1992 Allen Lambert Galleria at Brookfield Place (formerly known as BCE Place) is a light-filled 6-storey high atrium supported by parabolic arches that rise like a forest canopy.  It is high drama in the heart of Toronto's financial district.

James Nizam's light sculpture Pyramid once existed in Calatrava's galleria.  It is now materialized as a photographic banner hung in the lofty atrium.
