The Ontario Association of Architects (OAA) has announced their 2022 Design Excellence Awards Finalists. DTAH is proud to share that the Tommy Thompson Park Entrance Pavilion was one of the 17 Finalists announced.
Located in Toronto’s Port Lands Precinct, Tommy Thompson Park is a unique urban wilderness minutes from downtown, located on a manmade peninsula known as the Leslie Street Spit. The Tommy Thompson Park Entrance Pavilion establishes a new front door to the park that is welcoming, engaging, and ecologically sensitive to its context. Serving as a centre for discovery and education, the entrance pavilion is designed as a simple, yet elegant form split in two halves, covered by an expansive cantilevered roof. One half of the structure houses public accessible washrooms, while the other contains administrative spaces that support on-site educational programming.
