fort york visitor centre

fort york, the historic military base located in downtown toronto, will soon be graced with a new visitor
centre designed by patkau architects with kearns mancini architects. a jury of artists and designers
selected the team’s design over a number of other entries in a recent architectural competition. the site
is next to toronto’s elevated highway, the gardiner expressway, which was part of the design concept by
quadrangle architects previously featured on designboom
. the new visitor centre will feature exhibition
space, a gift shop, restaurant, community spaces, theatre and meeting rooms.  the design by patkau
architects with kearns mancini features a prominent ‘steel-escarpment’ and a landscape of grasses
designed to restore the landscape to its original, pre-development’ condition.  fort york was turned
into a museum in 1934 and the new visitor centre will increase this presence and connect the site
to the surrounding community.
