Documenting a historic structure designed by Mies Van der Rohe transitioning its roof from asphalt to green, the idea was to time-lapse the process and create a gallery at the Toronto-Dominion Centre, showcasing the work, the time and the result.

With months of painstaking time-lapse photography shot purposefully and beautifully by Banko Media (bankomedia.com) the final assembly pulled from 86 hours of footage into 3 distinct videos and set to an ambient sound track allowed these videos to be part of an Exposition held at the Toronto-Dominion Centre, and tell the story of the work.

Positioned as part of a "view" exhibit, these series of time-lapse videos cycled beside a monitor that held a real-time video feed of the Living Roof in its current state (as the roof is not visible from the ground). It truly represented a before and after view.
