The Sun Tower is a standard fixture in Vancouver’s historic downtown. The distinctive green dome was painted to imitate air-worn copper. When it was completed in 1912, it was called The World Building and was the tallest building in the British Empire at 82 m (269 ft), surpassing the previous record-holder, the Dominion Building located just around the corner. For two years, it was the tallest building in Canada until Toronto’s 20-story Optima Business Centre opened in 1914.
This one was painted as if two people passed each other on the street and then cast a backwards glance at one another.
