I had a great day today as it was Doors Open in Toronto. Doors Open is a special event wherein normally closed buildings are opened to the public. We’ve been going since it started 15 years ago, but we never got to see one of Toronto’s architectural gems, the R. C. Harris Water Treatment Plant.
Considered the best example of industrial use of the art deco style in Canada, it’s not only an architectural gem but it’s also situated on a beautiful setting by Lake Ontario. And Undercover Brother and X-Men were shot there. So we eagerly went to see it today.
