Doing the Wave

This is the Simcoe WaveDeck at the foot of Simcoe Street on the Toronto waterfront. Unique wooden wave decks are being constructed along the edge of Lake Ontario between Bathurst Street and Parliament Street.
The Simcoe WaveDeck opened in June 2009. The design has a dramatic 2.6 metre high curve and metal railings to prevent injuries.

These are new public spaces that vary in shape, articulation and design to reflect the constant movement of Lake Ontario.

Now that's what I call different - lovely to see something 'out of the box' as they say.
