This is an open, international ideas competition whose purpose is to gather a range of possibilities for the Green Line site in order to stimulate dialogue and action. The ideas will not be built, but they are meant to get the communities who live, study and work near the site to start thinking about its future.
This design competition aims 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 pedestrian and cycling link across the middle of the city and a public space and recreational amenity to the many neighbourhoods across Toronto that it links.
There are two Green Line competition streams: the Green Line Vision and the Green Line Underpass Solution.
Evaluation of submissions will be based on:
The jury will award $6000 CDN in cash prizes for the competition as below:
Competition A – Green Line Vision
Competition B – Green Line Underpass Solution
