Thursday Doors – August 25, 2016
This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.
Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.
Yet another of many images made during my tour of the University of Toronto campus a few weeks ago
The door above belongs to the University of Toronto’s “University College Building”. This building sites in the centre of the main campus. The plaque below can be seen on either side of the door in the image above above, the lefthand one in French and righthand one in English, Canada’s official languages.
The door is almost lost in the elaborate facade, with its intricate stone work and concentric arches. I also included the details of part of the main tower to add scale to this image. It truly is a beautiful door, and one of many in the downtown Toronto campus. More to follow.

Wow – the architect got a little carried away with this one. He decided to throw in a little bit of everything on this door!! You have to love these old buildings for their *wow* factor 🙂
So true. This a a crazy intricate door.
Imposing door. Love the wrought iron.
Quite intricate work. I often wonder if doors like this are actually used.
Quite the door!
Now that’s what I call an entrance! Nice one, Ed!
The quintessential ‘grand entrance’ 🙂
I like the materials used and the door itself, but it does seem a little “busy.”
Agree, it takes you a few minutes to take it all in.
Very impressive shot.
Not only is the door intricately beautiful but everything surrounding it is as well.
Wow, a grand design ! Fantastic door and surround…
It’s beautiful! I’m reminded of lace with all the twists, turns, and patterns. Great find!
Thank you, many more to come.
My goodness, I don’t know what to look at first, there’s so much going on around that door. So much intricate detail. Beautiful.
Amazing! Keep it up 🙂
Indeed it’s a beautiful door, and the facade of the building is so impressive. Great photo. Have an excellent day!
Thank you, and you also.
