Toronto Police 52 Division Entrance Addition


Site Enhancement Integrating Urban Composting Project at OCAD
Spring 2007

The existing front of this station is very plain. It starts with four generic barricade planters, next a completely blank concrete strip, then the city sidewalk at street front. I modelled the landscape surrounding the site to gauge scale compatibility of my design. The project required the integration of social composting. My design uses a raised walk with strategically placed garden beds emphasizing the station entrance. Planter gardens along the pillar supports guide pedestrian action. Railing planters funnel compost into soil to the ground level planter beds below.
