title Smart, Green and in Between - Rethinking the Office Tower
source ACADIA Quarterly, vol. 19, no. 1, pp. 10-11
summary The towers that paint Montreal’s skyline are relics of the 20th century. Towers that express the power of capital on the outside turn out to be almost empty from within. It looks like there was a race to reach the skies - to touch the Mount Royal peak. I remember an attorney working in one of those skyscrapers telling me “the windows are for the lawyers and here in the dark open space is where you can find the slaves.” His words took my imagination to think of a boat in the ancient times where slaves where rowing to the rhythm of the drums. But then I realized the contradiction here - I told him “you should place your ‘slaves’ next to the windows if you want them to be able to row and bring your boat to safe land.”
