This exhibition showcases the winning submissions of the Green Line Ideas Competition. The competition, organized by Workshop Architecture, invited designers and community members to create an overall vision for the public use of a 5km-long hydro corridor in midtown Toronto, north of Dupont from Lansdowne to Spadina.
This design competition aimed to demonstrate the potential of the particular hydro corridor site and also to foster a discussion on public use of other similar spaces in North American cities. Imagine the electricity infrastructure as a Green Line—a public space, a pedestrian and cycling link across the middle of the city, and a recreational amenity for the many neighbourhoods across Toronto that it links.
