The Waves Architecture & Design Museum concept building for Toronto’s eastern waterfront development. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario at the foot of Parliment Street, the site uniquely overlooks both downtown and has view of the entire inner bay. The design is based on the concept of the indoor and outdoor spaces living in harmony, personifying its sustainable equilibrium with the surrounding environment. Waves is situated to take full advantage of the unobstructed views and sun year round, the grounds add much needed public green space and a pedestrian boardwalk to encourage local exploration. With plenty of space for events, conferences and curation of historical items, Waves was designed to become a major destination and gathering place for the city.
