TOP: Transformative construction underway to achieve an urban development vision.BOTTOM: Pedestrian’s view of one among countless social events enjoying the amenities of the new City Hall.
In September 1957, then Mayor Nathan Phillips issued guidelines for an international design competitionfor a new City Hall on the northwest corner of Queen and Bay. A total of 510 designs were received from42 different countries. The winner of the competition was Finnish architect Viljo Revell. Today, Toronto isunimaginable without its modern City Hall and looking back at what was then a controversial and pivotalmoment in the history of Toronto, Nathan Phillips’ vision has been vindicated by every public event thatgraces the square that now bears his name.The Toronto Green Development Standard represents another threshold in the evolution of Toronto. Itsleaders and citizens must choose between business as usual and a green development future. What dowe imagine future generations would have us choose today?
