Jack Layton Ferry Terminal and the cityscape of the City of Toronto.
Working with aLLDesign and Rosenberg & Studio, Quadrangle proposed a new design for Toronto's ferry terminal and waterfront. The scheme involved a playful and colourful series of installations that provided shelter from both the heat and cold in the summer and winter respectively. 

Public park and open field

The design was envisioned to accommodate 2,500 passengers initially and 6,000 when fully developed. This critically-acclaimed (but unsuccessful) proposal centred on play and enjoyment through a simple and robust design. Active and passive features such as a splash pond that doubles as a skating rink in the winter, a model boat and kayak cove, sandy dunes and grassy berms, all would create activities for those waiting in line for the ferry and a destination for the City at large.
