Cool Gate


A new student residence, Morrison Hall, was built at U of Toronto in 2005 in a very tight infill space on St George St which is one of the main streets running through the campus. In such tight quarters, the delivery area had to be positioned right along the street but there was no budget for a gate so the architect, Eb Zeidler, designed one as a gift and this is it. It does a wonderful job hiding the loading area and also adds a touch of whimsy to the streetscape!
