Adam Cohen's Toronto Island studio project featured in blogTO


Waterloo Architecture student Adam Cohen has some very big ideas that he says could enliven the space for humans while also enhancing landscape conditions for local ecology to thrive on Toronto Island.

"Tasked with reimagining the park's central plaza for a new generation of residents and visitors, I began by examining possibilities for reviving programatic vibrancy while enhancing landscape conditions for local ecology," reads Cohen's proposal.

"Using the boardwalk to elevate program slightly above the islands' average surface height improves resiliency from increasingly common flooding."
