Don Mouth Design Launch

Audience at BCE Place

Model of the Stoss team's vision

Valkenburgh's version

I attended the presentation event for the competition to redesign the mouth of the Don River launched by the Toronto Waterfront Regeneration Corporation. I was quite surprised to see so many people. I estimated between 250-300 people showed up. The evening was a little long. Each group had a 20-30 minute presentation which went all the way to 9 PM.

The presentations were all over the map and it was a little hard to tell how the slide drawings might relate to what would eventually get built. Also nobody mentioned how much any of these designs might cost.

There are poster boards and 3-D models for all the designs which should be available for viewing at BCE place for the rest of the week.
