This impressive large building is on the Toronto campus of the Upper Canada Collage (UCC), one of Canada's most prestigious privet school. The building, called the Upper School, is the main building of the large 17 hectare site in Toronto's exclusive Forest Hill neighborhood. Constructed in the Georgian architectural style between 1959 and 1960 for the secondary school component of the college.

You seem to have a never ending array of architectural treasures, and this is another splendid one.
For me, this building actually looks more like an asylum that a school. I think I am just used to seeing this building type as more institutional, and they have negative connotations here, which is a shame, as asylums can be such beautiful buildings. Great POV again to show the breadth and depth of this fine Georgian pile. THe trees are very moody too!
All the best

Of course, this is a 'clean-cut' almost modern architecture and your perfect capture, color and depiction-wise honors the talent of the architect who designed it!
Thanks for showing.
