Scope and Content

This project series documents the control tower at the Toronto International Airport in Mississauga from 1958-1964. The office identified the project number as 5872.

This project consisted of a 100 foot high control tower built onto a single storey building totalling 30,600 square feet in size. The reinforced concrete tower was hexagonal in shape with a steel frame and reinforced concrete slab floor. A transparent skydome forms the ceiling of the central lobby, providing a view of the floor and supporting shafts of the tower. This project won a Silver Massey Medal for Architecture in 1964 and recognition from Canadian Architect magazine and the Beautify Toronto Campaign for its significance.

The project is recorded through a presentation board of a photo of the skydome dating from around 1964.
