Our multi-award winning open space, Sherbourne Common, the iconic waterfront park along Lake Ontario in downtown Toronto, has won yet another prestigious award: it has been named one of the top 10 World Class Landscape Architecture Projects of 2014. PFS Studio is honored to receive this distinction from The Landscape Architects Network (LAN).
Here’s what LAN has to say:
Top 10 World Class Landscape Architecture Projects of 2014
Every year, the world becomes home to new, innovative projects in landscape architecture. And every year, the designers behind these projects eagerly await recognition for their hard work. Looking at new technology, public attitudes toward the space, and awards received, the following list is a showcase of some of the best of 2014.
Sherbourne Common, Toronto, Ontario — PFS Studio
As a winner of the 2013 ASLA Honor Award for Design, this space has been around for more than a year. However, it continued to make headlines throughout 2014. Sherbourne Common, a formerly neglected brownfield site on Toronto’s waterfront, combines a storm water treatment facility with landscape, architecture, engineering, and public art to provide an outdoor living room for the new residents of the East Bayfront community.
