A New 'Wave' On Toronto's Waterfront
"The Spadina WaveDeck spans one of downtown Toronto's many boat slips, little-used indentations in the harbor's edge that pinch the shoreline, leaving only about nine feet of sidewalk between the lake and Queens Quay Boulevard, a four-lane thoroughfare with streetcar tracks. This is no simple boardwalk, however. 'We designed a specific silhouette of undulating decks where the city kisses the lake,' Geuze says of the project, which will ultimately include five WaveDecks. His ipe-clad ribbons rise and fall as they cross the slips, their curves creating seating ledges and allowing the pedestrian walkway to wiggle down to the water's edge."
