That can be the only possible explanation for the building you see above. It was called the Astra Tower, and it used to house the brewery that, fittingly, made Astra beer. But that operation eventually moved to a new building, leaving the Astra Tower no other use than forcing nearby residents to live in constant fear of being crushed to death by one of the most awkwardly designed buildings ever. It was demolished in 2005 and replaced with, you know, a normal a building. They got rid of the brewery, too.
In other words, you have absolutely no reason to ever visit Astra Tower.
Ontario College of Art and Design
The Ontario College of Art and Design had problems. For starters, they needed a bigger building. On top of that, they're a college of art, and the Internet exists now. Accepted standards of conduct under those circumstances dictate that you must build the most audacious-looking structure imaginable:
As you can see, they nailed it. That's the new and improved Ontario College of Art and Design, a two-story structure erected in the exact spot where the old building still stands. The two sections are connected by an elevator and a shared fear that the upper level will someday overpower the comically thin stilts that support it, sending it crashing into the building below and killing everybody.
But damn if it won't look "funky" doing it.
