I often take Davenport as my route of choice into the Core, and when I do I almost always pass the former Masonic Temple. Standing 6 storeys tall and built in 1917, It’s been home to MTV’s studio for the last few years! It’s fate and future has been up in the air with plans for MTV to be relocating the studios to 299 Queen St. West. It sits on a site covered with music history including Led Zeppelin’s first Toronto concert and rehearsal space for the Rolling Stones… If I had my way, it would be reused as a concert/restaurant/hotel for all to enjoy AND NOT ANOTHER PRIVATE RESIDENCE… here’s to hoping!
Perfect for the architectural-fish-loving-critic in your life comes the Fish Hotel. When I first saw the forward thinking fish “bowl” I thought it looked looked like something out of a Teeple concept (think Giraffe Condos). The tanks were designed by Teddy Luong during competition at Carlton University’s school of industrial design.
The fish hotel is made with a white ABS shell. The fishbowls can be stacked for a condo-like appearance, and glass bowls may be removed for easy cleaning… talk about preventing urban-aquatic sprawl!
The fishbowl sells for $30 online and ships throughout Canada!
