1061 Fort Street – the Mosaic Building

This building is now known as the Mosaic Building but it was originally built in 1963 by architect John Di Castri for the Royal Trust Company.

It is named the Mosaic Building after the mosaic tile murals on the north and south facades depicting historic scenes and industries in British Columbia history. The mosaics are the work of Mexican artist Andres Salgo.
