Future Landscapes


The CASA courtyard is designed as a vital link in the fabric of the evolving and densifying community at Bloor / Yonge in Toronto.

A pure and enduring spatial typology—a frame created by buildings—offers great potential for a memorable designed environment. Well-defined architectural space is scarce in our transforming city core. PUBLIC WORKS`s approach to the design of the courtyard draws from the early history of garden design: the eternal search for paradise. From Eden to today, the garden seeks places of discovery and imagination where one can become ‘lost’ within the city.
