Urban landscapes: the soaring skyscraper

JAMES FLAHERTY BUILDING, OTTAWA, ONTARIO

This 17-storey structure, completed in 2014 just a few blocks from the Canadian Parliament buildings, is named after a former national minister of finance. Flaherty served for eight years before unexpectedly dying just a few weeks after resigning in 2014. The building is occupied by 2,600 federal government employees.
I was attracted by the bold exterior and the bright night-time lighting, working carefully to make everything as symmetrical as possible. There wasn’t much colour in this scene, so I went with a black-and-white treatment to emphasize the lines.
