Wall Centre




This is one of the few buildings in downtown Vancouver laying claim to the tallest building title. The reason for the muddle is the fact that the city is not on level ground. Thus a shorter building on a higher elevation would appear taller than its taller neighbour situated at the bottom of the slope.

Wall Centre's been around for a while now. So my question to you is, yay or nay for the black/white glass. I personally don't mind the mix colour glass. It makes the building look unique, yet in that angle shot it doesn't look as good.

It could easily be the poor quality of the photo. It was an overcast day with heavy clouds. This tends to make everything darker and grey which in turn decreases the contrast between the two glasses.
