Master Plan Urban Design Award for Canada Science and Technology Museum
Earthscape is proud to have been a part of the design team lead by O2 Planning + Design that received a 2017 Mayor’s Urban Design Award from the City of Ottawa for Museum Park. The master plan for the park at the Canada Science and Technology Museum, devised by O2 Planning + Design, was awarded the highest honour in the “Visions, Master Plans and/or Design Guidelines” category. The plan seeks to bring the innovation and brilliance found inside the museum to the exterior in order to activate the green space directly adjacent to the museum. The park will become an extension of the learning opportunities and experiences from interior to exterior, creating an immersive and interactive environment of scientific education.
The design of the park is the product of collaboration between O2 Planning + Design, VLAN Paysages, Beakerhead, the Canada Science and Technology Museum, and Earthscape.
