Client: Pro/Bono For the City of Toronto
Type: A Story of Our City
Location: Toronto, Canada
Toronto is undergoing an urban transformation, density is improving the liveliness of our city, but the towers we build are monotonous. The rules for tall buildings in Toronto are failing us as citizens to create a city or skyline we are proud of to leave to future generations. The podium matrix is our solution, stop worrying about the towers and start being concerned with the ground plane, lets create an extraordinary experience of the city at its street levels. Lets encourage a playful and ambitious use of architecture that blurs the traditions of what acceptable architecture can be in order to create a dream for our collective enjoyment.
