    UofT: Sidney Smith Hall Redevelopment (?s, ?)

    UofT: Sidney Smith Hall Redevelopment (?s, ?)

    St Lawrence Centre Redevelopment (?, ?, ?)

    Several aspects of the scheme, including the street closure, echo the design that Tura Cousins Wilson of SOCA did for The Globe last year. He deserves credit. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/toronto/article-how-to-bring-a-brutalist-public-building-back-to-life/

    Toronto | 506 Church Street | 49.79m | 14s | Graywood | Diamond Schmitt
