Design Festival Walks

Tour of Garden Landscape at Hydro Place Manitoba Hydro Place is a one of the ‘greenest’ office buildings in the world with very complex building systems, new technologies and elevated standards for quality control demanded. The project required coordinating with an international design team composed of more than 24 firms. Manitoba Hydro Place marks a tipping point towards the positive and proactive stimulus to urban revitalization by connecting the building to the city, and to the image of the city and its skyline. The site organization of the South end of the building was designed to cut the site at a 45 degree angle in order to leave room for a new urban park on the Graham Street corridor. The park creates a further connection to city for the building, and is used as an event space in conjunction with the interior Public Galleria. The innovative ‘Green ‘ Landscape features such as winter gardens, water features, green roofs contributes achieving the energy efficiencies. Glen Manning, Landscape Architect / Principal from Hilderman Thomas Frank Cram
