We are pleased to announce that CF Toronto Eaton Centre Bridge has won the Toronto Urban Design Award of Excellence for Elements. WilkinsonEyre’s striking vision for the bridge won an international design competition in 2014. This sculptural landmark was designed in collaboration with Zeidler and completed in 2017.
The jury commented that it’s, “a remarkable feat of architecture creates connectivity in a dense commercial zone. Instead of a utilitarian structure connecting busy commercial zones, this structure captured the public’s imagination by achieving a sense of tactile and visual dynamism that enhanced the existing architecture. The overpass bridge serves as an intermediary for inhabitants to experience space while carefully filtering and framing views of the surrounding context forming novel vantage points.”
