One Millionth Tower Launch, Azure Best of 2011, and Invading the TTC

It’s been a busy month for the One Millionth Tower.

First launched in Toronto at the Kipling Towers in early December, the project premiered to the City at large at a packed Gladstone Hotel later that week.  Following presentations of the films and panel discussion, the evening highlight was a solo performance by Kipling resident and 1MT performer Jamal. An article on the event by Marcus Gee in the Globe and Mail can be found here.

In late December AZURE magazine named the One Millionth Tower one of their seven favourite things of 2011.

And in January 2012 the One Millionth Tower will be flooding the TTC, with billboards and video clips found at a platform near you. For more images and information, visit the NFB HIGHRISE Blog here.

Congratulations to everyone once again for their phenomenal work on the 1MT.
