See How An Architect for the TTC completely trolled the city of Toronto
#TBT to when Toronto transit-goers saw phallic-looking signs being taken down at Downsview station. They appeared to illustrate that the station was designed with a rather phallic shape in mind – enough so that TTC found it necessary to remove the signs entirely.
After some extensive digging, we’ve found the blueprints of that station. And it’s even better than we thought – it looks like a giant… well, you know.
I mean there are even two other buildings that were designed and erected that fill in the gaps for the imagery. The internet thought it was phallic with just the station – what about with the substation and the er, passenger pick-up area? Can we talk about the vent shafts? It’s an interesting profile of something, that’s for sure.
What do you think, did the architect intentionally design the station to look this way (AKA trolling the entire city of Toronto), or is it just a happy coincidence? Leave your comments below!
