This project is the first transformation in the Agora/Theatre City Hall revitalization. This 3-acre, upper-level component of the 1965 iconic City Hall was originally conceived by the Finnish architect Viljo Revell as a public ceremonial space accessible by a giant sculptural ramp. Unable to attract crowds, this space proved to be a grim, paved void, remaining closed to the public for over a decade. Today, this site is the largest publicly-accessible green roof in Canada and serves as the flagship green roof project for the City of Toronto. The garden fulfils the original potential of Revell's design, functioning as a place for gathering, ceremony, and where one can closely view the towers. Formally complex and lush, with a diversity of colour and texture, this metropolitan haven has become a site for intimacy, lingering and strolling, large-scale art installations and wedding-chapel gatherings.
