Abstrait:

In April 2015, the city of Toronto selected a proposal for the Fort York Pedestrian and Cycle Bridge project in a design-build competition. The project provides a key link between Stanley Park to the north and the historic area of Fort York – the birth place of Toronto- crossing two rail corridors. Construction started in August 2016 and completion is expected by the end of 2017.

The connection includes two pedestrian bridges. The awarded design proposal includes an unprecedented technical innovation in North America: the use of Duplex Stainless Steel on the entire structure. This pioneering use of a forefront technology provides premium aesthetics within a unique setting in addition to a safe and durable asset for the community. The structure has an extended life cycle, is more corrosionresistant and requires less maintenance, reducing its overall cost.

Each bridge is supported by a single arch rib inclining at 18° to provide a slender, transparent and elegant impression. The two arches tilt in opposite direction, and the overall layout resembles a Yin & Yang shape to emphasize both contrast and continuity, expressing a modern, understated and elegant aesthetic.
