Which Waterfront Scheme?
We are in New York as guests of the wonderful people at the Insitute of Urban Design.It's been inspirational catching up with the NY cultural scene but I'm wondering who won the waterfront innovation competition.

Gabriel was the last person to leave a message:

I agree with Matthew's statements as well. Foster has the best design of the five contestants. They've gone above and beyond what was expected. Their vision is spectacular and global! They have the ability to turn Toronto's waterfront into a global attraction, while still making those who are concerned with the need to create public infrastructure linking the water's edge in an east-west direction happy. I think it would be a mistake not to choose Foster's design. Torontonians like to think of Toronto as an international city, although the majority of our infrastructure/buildings are incredibly dated. Foster's idea is exactly what will get Toronto on the way to becoming the international city we all want it to be. What's more, one has to take into consideration the buildings already lining the waterfront. You need something that is going to compliment them. Foster has it - for so many reasons. Foster all the way.
