candidature entro 8 gennaio 2010

The City of Toronto has launched an international architectural competition to find the best design for a new, vibrant North Building in the iconic St. Lawrence Market Complex.

"We're looking for the best creative minds in architecture to replace the underused, single-storey North Market building with a new four-storey, multi-purpose facility that will be a model for sustainable design, energy efficiency and design excellence," said Mayor David Miller "The challenge for architectural teams is to come forward with a forward-thinking design that is also mindful of the character and heritage of the St. Lawrence Market and surrounding neighbourhood."

The St. Lawrence Market North Building Design Competition is a two-stage process.

In stage one, eligible architects are invited to submit an "Expression of Interest" and a qualified team of City staff and a Professional Advisor to the Competition will select a short list of architectural teams to advance to the next stage.

In stage two, a jury will evaluate the design submissions developed by the short-listed teams, and the competition will end in June 2010 when a winning design is announced. T

The new building is expected to be completed and operating in 2014.
