A nod to Yorkville's reservoir of 19th century architecture, the "urban carpet" being laid at the base of the Four Seasons Hotel & Residences is a playful contradiction to the disciplined towers that rise on its perimeter. Designed by Claude Cormier Landscape Architecture, the carpet is composed of eight tonnes of red cobblestones assembled around a 12-meter cast iron fountain that will form the centrepiece of the building's main entrance. What are your thoughts on the design?
