While I was at City Hall, I made note of a few past and ongoing works. I will share some pics and my thoughts. Photos taken Sept 11th, 2022:
We'll start w/things I have complaints about, and then finish on a brighter note.
The corridor beside Osgoode Hall, has entirely contemporary streetlights that look ridiculous next to this building and lack any character or ambiance at all.
The integration of 'wild' plants into the seating area by the Peace Garden has to be written off as a fail. I like nature, but this just doesn't look good at all. It reads as neglected rather than natural.
Clean that nonsense out.....we can keep some green here, but it needs to be much shorter and convey the appearance of a cared-for space.
On a brighter note, the Aspens here look phenomenal, and are nearing mature height, fall colours are setting in a bit early on them (I'll bet they are from northern Ontario planting stock)............but it just looks lovely.
