Doors Open Toronto 2006. Edificios en Toronto


Es una tradicion que cada año repito religiosamente... bueno, tambien hay muchas personas que hacen lo mismo -y henos aqui- todos juntos esperando pacientemente en las filas para adentrarnos en la historia escondida en esos edificios que abren sus puertas al publico y leer por nosotros mismos la historia escondida en sus muros.

It is a tradition which repeats religiously every year ... good, perhaps there are many people who do the same - and here we are - all together waiting patiently in lines to enter into the history hidden in these building which open their doors to the public, and to read for ourselves the history hidden in their walls.



Adjunto algunas fotos del edificio Torre del Norte del CIBC Bank, la entrada principal es una pieza de arte, y no se diga la sala de reuniones con piezas de muebles creadas por artesanos que dejaron su huella indeleble... pero lo que mas me impresiono fue la inmensa caja fuerte.

Attached are some photos of the North Tower of the CIBC Bank. The main entrance is a piece of art, and I don't know how to describe the board room with pieces of furniture created by artisans who left their indelible mark ... but what impressed me the most was the immense vault.




Cuando modernizaron las instalaciones removieron las cajas fuertes y detras de ellas estaba escrito con el puño y letra el nombre del ingeniero a cargo del proyecto, ademas encontre un grafico con especificaciones, que me gustaria compartirlo con todos ustedes.


When they modernized the installations, they removed the built-in strong boxes, and behind them was written with is own hand the name of the engineer who had headed up the original project, and in addition there was a diagram with specifications, which I liked a lot.
