Rogers wins Toronto contest

  • Comment

Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) has triumphed in an international design competition to rebuild the North Building at St Lawrence Market in Toronto, Canada

The practice, teamed with Toronto-based Adamson Associates Architects, saw off competition from four Canadian design teams to win the prize.

RSHP’s five-storey scheme for the historic town centre site features an underground car park, a market on the ground floor and court rooms and offices above. Intended as an eco-exemplar the proposals also include a green roof and geo-thermal system.

Toronto mayor David Miller said: ‘Through their creativity, Adamson Associates Architects and RSH+P have imaginatively re-introduced the new North Market Building as a place to reconnect with the rich history and heritage of the St. Lawrence neighbourhood, celebrate the St. Lawrence Hall and St Lawrence South Market, and experience the vibrant life in the market’s surrounding streets and areas.’

It is expected the building will be completed by 2014.
