Lanterra Celebrates Innovative Public Art Installation

Official ceremonies were held to mark the dedication of the Acconci Studio-created Public Art architectural installation at WaterParkCity, to the City of Toronto. Located in Toronto’s Fort York Neighbourhood, WaterParkCity is a multi- tower condominium community by Lanterra Developments and Lifetime Developments. Designer/architect Vito Acconci joined Lanterra’s Mark Mandelbaum and Barry Fenton, as well as David Anselmi, Chair of Toronto’s Public Art Commission, for the celebration.

This unique interpretation of concrete- and-steel perimeter fencing encircles the exterior of 219 and 231 Fort York Boulevard, creating interplay between public space and private residential areas. As it rises and falls, the new fence makes seating that turns into privacy screens, trel- lises, an entrance canopy, and windscreens that climb the building. The installation was commissioned through a juried compe- tition managed by Public Art Management.

Jury member and developer Mark Mandelbaum said, “We are proud to have Vito Acconci’s artistic vision as an integral part of WaterParkCity. His work is known around the world for its creativity and fluidity.”
