PLANT Architects On City Hall Square Short List
It was great to hear that Reading Toronto contributors and friends PLANT Architect made the short list for the Nathan Phillip Square redesign competition. PLANT's principals, Chris Pommer, Lisa Rapoport and Mary Tremain are graduates of the University of Waterloo School of Architecture. They have a long history of creating design work that stretches the boundaries of expectation so their proposal for NPS will no doubt surprise and delight.


Here are the four finalists as noted at Archiseek.com:

Four design teams have been selected as finalists to compete in Stage II of the international competition to revitalize Nathan Phillips Square. The four teams short-listed by the competition jury to proceed to Stage II of the competition are:
