Sam Pollock Square, Toronto, Canada, 2008

This panorama was taken on 1:24 pm on Saturday, December 22, 2007, just 16 minutes after the winter solstice. It was taken in the spot between the square dedicated to Sam Pollock and "Galleria" designed by famous architect Santiago Calatrava. Sam Pollock was a legendary general manager in the National Hockey League and member of Hockey Hall of Fame. He a was the Montreal Canadians' general manager for 9 Stanley Cups. Hockey Hall of Fame and several other heritage buildings are visible in this panorama. They all survived the great fire of 1904 and have been restored to their original 1850's grandeur and incorporated into the street-level design.

Place is very popular specially during the winter months. One of the events regularly staged here is "Nuit Blanche" when the whole city is converted to the giant art show [small photo right].

Space is incorporated in the network of interconnecting underground spaces, the 10-kilometer labyrinth of pathways linking office buildings, hotels, entertainment and shopping in the downtown Toronto.
