Toronto’s efforts are an informing example of how waterfront cities can become more  liveable and sustainable cities by revisiting their natural settings and historic identity. The article illustrates how landscape design, long-term vision and continuity are key in such revitalisation projects. Alyssa of Atelier Anonymous  was involved in the development of the winning vision by West 8.
