The Shangri-La Toronto is a landmark building located on University Avenue, Toronto’s ceremonial grand boulevard. The 65-storey mixed-use development is comprised of 202 hotel rooms on the first seventeen floors, and 393 luxury residences, including private estates, above. With the goal of contributing to, and enlivening the public realm, Hariri Pontarini Architects facilitated the commission of a significant public work of art at its entrance – the sculpture ‘Rising’ by Zhang Huan. Its fluid form animates the street experience and invites pedestrians into the building.
