Socha’s experimental photography methods began during this Architecture thesis exploring the seemingly perpetual development of glass condo towers on Toronto’s waterfront.
The original pieces exhibited here used photographs of the existing condo tower building type as a case study, overlaid, to find the essence of the type.

Tridel developments are rooted in an eight-decade tradition of building homes, communities and lifestyles. At Alter, Tridel provokes a shift from the ordinary. Alter is a bold new perspective on what it means to see and be seen. Soaring 33 storeys high, with distinct angular features and expanses of white and grey glass, Alter is at once visually dynamic. The building’s signature element of alternating recessed balconies strikes an unforgettable street presence – while offering all those who live here their own unique view of the city.
