THE CONFLUENCE: HUMBER BAY DELTA Location | Toronto, ON Canada

Advisors | Pete North, Nicolas Koff Project partner | Leonard Flot 2016

Responding to the realities of urbanisation and its adverse effects on lake Ontario and Toronto’s watersheds, Humber Bay Park finds itself at a precarious stage. Largely unchanged from its origins as a park in the 1980s and facing the programmatic pressures of canonic condo boom at the Humber Bay shores, the park’s identity and infrastructure is ripe for a re-think. Mimico creek, one of the most urbanised watersheds in the TRCAs (Toronto Region and Conservation Authority) jurisdiction faces a number of challenges including storm water runoff, increased pollution, sedimentation and habitat loss. Its larger neighbour to the east, Humber River, one of the largest watersheds faces the same pressures with almost 5 times urban development with addition of the urban sprawl at the headwaters. Historically the two tributaries have been joined by a delta more inland from the current positioning, however colonial settlement, resource extraction and increased urbanisation, split the tributaries to deal with the pressures of the city on their own. The proposal aims to bring Mimico creek and Humber River together for the first time in over 200 years into a combined delta at the Humber Bay, where restorative ecology, soil remediation technologies and social programming are intertwined. The large amount of contaminated sediment from both tributaries becomes the untapped resource that is harvested for building new land and restructuring the site into a resilient delta park. Combining restorative ecological processes and social elements the park provides relief for struggling watersheds and creates a 21st century public park that better serves the nearby residents and the city at large. 8

HARBORD VILLAGE GATEWAYS Location | Toronto, ON Canada Advisor | Pete North 2016

In a diverse city like Toronto, an interesting street typology is found on the corners where major east-west avenues Harbord Street, College Street and Bloor Street intersect with small streets of the neighbourhood. Those intersections are transitory spaces between a bustling avenue and quiet residential streets; where cafes, restaurants, convenience stores, laundromats and cleaners can be found. These places provide opportunities for unique intersections of social and ecological exchange. From a social point of view, they are meeting points where people hangout, eat, and engage in discussion. Ecologically however, they are often absent of any green space, sometimes even trees, making them dirty, grey concrete left over spaces with no sense of place. It is long overdue to address those micro spaces as part of the network of established public spaces in Harbord Village, where they already enjoy a vibrant social demographic, and make them identity markers for the neighbourhood. Their location and intersection with the municipal stormwater sewer, position them as water retention spaces to combat stormwater runoff and deploy phytoremedial planting pallette as a strategy to prevent contaminants entering the municipal water drain. Most importantly, they have potential to become the gateways to neighbourhood’s stories, past and current memories as well as unrealised futures. 16

TOOLKIT OF CYCLING INFRASTRUCTURE RETROFITS: STRATEGIC SOLUTIONS FOR G.T.H.A. CITIES Location | Select municipalities in Ontario, Canada Project partner | Kamila Grigo 2016 Honourable Mention at the Cities of Tomorrow competition

Expanding cycling infrastructure in Ontario municipalities, particularly in Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA), is imperative in order to reap environmental, economic and health benefits. However, due to political and fiscal challenges and geographical realities, it is difficult for municipalities to implement large-scale, comprehensive cycling infrastructure projects. This submission for Cities of Tomorrow competition, therefore proposes a toolkit of cycling retrofit designs adaptable to existing railway infrastructure in strategic locations. The retrofitting of underused rail, and potentially additional transit corridors, is a faster, cost-effective and nimbler approach to providing cycling infrastructure, all while connecting with the existing landscape and increasing recreational and cultural programming. Rather than solely providing basic infrastructure, the designs proposed in this toolkit create places with social, cultural and ecological relevancy. 22

The garden is inspired by the growing interest in public participation in pollinator conservation. There are many ways to provide habitat for wild bees and with over 350 species in Toronto and the surrounding region, gardeners that employ bee friendly strategies can attract a pollinator party all spring and summer long.

WILLOUGHBY RESIDENCE Location | Toronto, ON Canada Supervisor | Sander Freedman (SANDER DESIGN) 2013

The client for this garden was attracted to Japanese forest gardens and the atmosphere they produced. The inspiration came from the triangular shape of the property. The client wanted a low maintenance garden that was lush with planting and a small nook to relax in it. The Japanese torii gate became an interesting sculptural piece to frame a transition from home to nature. The screens along the perimeter of the garden were inspired by Japanese woodwork. A new deck was also built to accommodate additional room for lounging and watching the yard change with the seasons.

THE VARVE URBAN PARK SITE

Location | Toronto, ON Canada Advisors | Liat Margolis, Shadi Ramos 2015

Varve /’värv/ geological term describing thin layer of annual sediment or sedimentary rock. The Varve Urban Park is a unique park in the vibrant St. Lawrence neighbourhood in Toronto. The park is a departure from current condition of prescribed playscapes and standardized park spaces in favour of exploring an idea of open ended programming that focuses on play and active lifestyle framed around the idea of adventure and tactility. Early conceptual exploration was driven by generating interesting digital forms and adapting them to the urban landscape. The digital form and historical context inspired the material composition and the identity of the park. The site’s fill material is sorted and used as the main composition of the twisting concrete mounds - the focal elements of the park. It is a way to reconcile the material composition of this waterfront neighbourhood and establish a unique historical connection to its industrial past. Raw aggregate materials like mulch, gravel and mud are used as play materials for children to move, sculpt and dig, connecting them back to the landscape. The park brings a unique “urban nature” to city inhabitants and redefines park’s connection to the city and its history. 44
