HTO Park, in Toronto, submitted for 2009 Toronto Urban Design Award
Leni Schwendinger Light Projects: Lighting Design
Submissions were accepted in seven categories. The competition collected a total of 117 entries, including 73 built projects, 24 unbuilt projects, master plans and visions, and twenty student projects.
Oddly, HTO Park was the only submission in “Large Places or Neighbourhood Designs”, a design plan for a new or renovated large-scale area of the city. Although the project was not a winning entry, we are very proud of it.
Here, Light Projects took a leap in specifying a high mast pole, in part to compete with the scale of the CN Tower — the world’s tallest building and free standing structure — standing in the background of the quayside park.
