Detailed Experience Canadian Architect
Ian Chodikoff, Canadian Architect, April 2005

about

Our approach to designing the entryway to Fort York was to make a clear distinction between old and new, specifically to ensure that the new would not mask the old. A clear glass canopy over the door, for example, does its protective job without distracting from the historic fabric of the barrack. The concrete pad is pulled away from the wooden barrack walls.

New walkways, railings, benches and fountains were designed to be durable and provide visual interest as a preface to the edifying experience to come. Great care was exercised during construction so as to detect and preserve even the smallest of fragments for historical record.
