SkyWatch Friday-Marilyn Monroe Towers

Posted by Lorac Friday, 7 September 2012

Marilyn Monroe Towers, Mississauga Ontario

Yansong Ma is the Beijing architect behind the Mississauga’s celebrated Marilyn Monroe building, now actually two buildings, each a "curvaceous" skyscraper twisting its way to the clouds.

I have a client whose building looks out onto these Twin Towers. When I was leaving the other day, the sun was lined up so nicely I just had to stop and get a picture (or 5, lol) Too see more SkyWatch Friday click "Here".
These towers are at  the corner of Hurontario and Burnhamthorpe in Mississauga for those interested in seeing them.

  4. I LOVE these buildings. And I have way more than 5 photos, but then I started taking them once they went up and you could see their shapely figure :)

  6. VioletSky- I didn't realize they were called Marilyn Monroe Buildings until today. I thought that rather appropriate!

  16. The Marilyn Monroe Towers ~ LOL! Great name for them. The leafy tree at the base of the one on the left could almost be the billowing dress from that famous photo of MM standing on the sidewalk grate. :-)

    I love how you captured the sun in these - no easy feat! Very fun SWF photo!
