Celebrated Italian architect unveils plans for his first Toronto building
Paris, New York and now, Hogtown.
The new Toronto Courthouse is the first project in Canada for the celebrated Renzo Piano Building Workshop, whose resume boasts cultural landmarks like the Centre Pompidou and The New York Times Building.
Located on 10 Armoury Street, just north of City Hall, the new 20-metre tall atrium enclosed by a highly transparent, glazed façade will create continued dialogue with the city. Another inclusive feature is a new learning centre, where students delve into indigenous history and the intricacies of the Ontario justice system.
