Toronto Dominion Centre, built in collaboration with Mies van der Rohe, Bergman and Hamann, and John B. Parkin and Associates was originally constructed from 1963-67. Sandwiched between King and Wellington streets, the complex was the largest of its kind at the time of completion housing a multitude of shops, restaurants, cinema, parking garage and over 3 million square ft of office space. His international style focuses primarily on the element of flexibility and the ability to create a form influenced by function, not generated by it. The steel frame of the building supports a series of matte black I-beam mullions, fascia covers and glazing frames housing bronze-grey tinted glass. A 26 ft high glass wall is inset from the perimeter on the ground floor creating a large open entrance way creating a visual connection from street to street. In later years numerous additions and renovations where done to the site, adding four more smaller towers ranging in height from 22- 36 storeys constructed in a similar style as the original towers designed by Mies.
