Dundas Square, Toronto, Canada, 2013[open in full screen]  

 
 

This quote from our Dundas Square VR from 2005 is even more true today: "...surrounding buildings are "decorated" with enormous number of advertising screens and the result is a hybrid between real human energy and the energy of the cyber world. "

 

In 2013 there are more buildings around, they are taller and with more surface for advertisement.

Impression is so overwhelming, for average person – not looking to the ground and somewhat calming sound and movement of the water fountains – it is unbearable.

  Space is very well used and being in the very centre of the city frequented by everybody. On this visit square was preparing for the evening concert of "Lady Antebellum". OK.

Next Victoria Square, Colborne
