Toronto is getting a Stunning new building made of wood

From Issue No. 267 | April 1, 2018

Entry by Shigeru Ban and Brook McIlroy

Called The Arbour, this structure will be the first and largest of its kind in Ontario at 12-storeys tall with a 16,250 square-metre footprint. It was also be the site of Canada's first Tall Wood Research Institute and, hopefully, a leader in green and sustainable construction.

What we won't know until next week is what this futuristic, mass timber building will look like.

Four different architectural firms will be showcasing their design concepts at an open event on March 27 at 51 Dockside Drive. Each firm will have 20 minutes to present their ideas to a "distinguished jury," as well as members of the public, using models, panels and poster presentations.
