This stunning addition to the landmark Eaton Centre in Toronto involved replacing an existing pedestrian bridge connecting the Hudson Bay building to the Eaton Centre, elevated over Queen Street. The new 100ft long bridge is clad in bent glass and warped bronze panels with a steel spine concealed in the floor assembly. The shape of the enclosure transitions from rectangular at one end to a decagon that matches the existing Hudson Bay entrance at the other end. The result is a twisting helical form that surrounds the occupants in glass and blurs the line between vertical and horizontal. A truly unique structure.
