Reassembly

Today’s Daily Photo was captured by UrbanToronto Forum contributor Red Mars on September 1 as two workers on an aerial work platform—also known as a cherry picker—were reassembling the framework for a flowing canopy over the four-storey-high central pedestrian shopping spine at The Well. Why reassembling and not simply assembling? The canopy, designed by BDP and built by Gartner in Germany, was assembled there initially to ensure that every piece—each one, steel and glass, is custom made to precisely fit in one spot—actually did fit perfectly. Disassembled and shipped to Toronto, the canopy is now coming together in its permanent home between Front and Wellington streets west of Spadina.
