It's definitely encouraging to see proposals with more varied facades these days, indeed the obsession with all-glass envelopes might be waning; likely helped by environmental concerns. I also recall years back Toronto talking about mandating a maximum % of the facade that can be clad with glass, but I'm not sure if that ever went into effect.Could end up being a blessing in disguise. They'll be forced to replace it all and, hopefully, with something of visual interest. 1990-2020 has been an incredibly soul sucking experience from an architectural POV. The last few years we've witnessed that obsession with all glass everything weaken. We could see many of these buildings re-clad with actual walls.
Stone, metal, colour, texture, solidity? Yes, please!
