HVRA Brunswick-College Parkette Design CompetitionMarch 31st, 2011

Harbord Village Residents’ Association seeks the input of students and professionals of architecture and environmental design who can help us re-imagine re-engineer and re-plant Brunswick-College Parkette (midway between Spadina Avenue and Bathurst Street in Toronto.) The challenge of this competition is the creation of an affordable design that will allow the parkette to become a place for meeting and relaxation for all, at the junction of one of Toronto’s most elegant and historic residential avenues with a section of College street that desperately needs revitalization.

Prizes of $200, $100 and $50 will be awarded to first, second and third place winners. Prizes will also be awarded to junior entrants. In addition to cash prizes, entrants whose ideas are incorporated into the renovation of Brunswick-College parkette will be named on a plaque that will be placed in prominent view at the site when reconstruction is complete.


The Brunswick-College Parkette Design Competition is open to everyone and anyone, from professionals and students of architecture and environmental design to children and adults of any age or design experience. Visit the Submissions overview webpage on this website for more information.


Entries will be distributed for public display and neighbourhood response by co-operating local businesses and institutions on College and Harbord Streets, between Spadina and Bathurst. Prior to judging, entries will be gathered for display and judging in the meeting room of Kensington Gardens longterm care facility, 25 Brunswick Avenue (just north of the parkette).

Judging will be by members of the local architecture and environmental-design communities, as well as by representatives of local businesses, Kensington Health Centre and Kensington Gardens and Harbord Village Residents’ Association.
