EXCELLENCE 2019
PAYSAGES PUBLICS D'ÉCHELLE MOYEN

The geometry of the flared turnaround at the
corner deflects large wave run-up from washing
away the sand above.
The lake bed within the slip has been raised
to create a pebble beach cove where visitors
gradually enter a protected calm-water zone.
An accessibility feature is provided here by a
stair and ramp, permitting access to touch the
water for all abilities.
The march to the water ends at the pier. A
galvanized truss bridge reinforces the beach
path diagonal, inflected in the middle for passing
canoes and kayaks, and visually linking the pier,
slip, and tiered beach steps with each other. A
jumping platform at the dock's east end teases
endless lines of lake jumpers into the deep water.
Buoyed by large swells on the south side of the
pier, swimmers surrender to the thrill of the
elements, with safe exit ladders at arm's reach.
"It is commendable that the designers changed
the project design in response to seeing
how people used the space; it was almost
accidental," the jury noted. "They realized
that water is an important part of Kingston's
heritage, and this project reconnects people
with the water, but also with its past."

intégré aux gradins de la terrasse. Les gradins
de deux mètres sont suffisamment larges
pour que l'on puisse s'allonger, s'asseoir dans
l'eau ou plonger. La géométrie empêche les
grosses vagues d'emporter le sable.
Dans la descente, le fond du lac a été surélevé
pour créer une anse de galets où les visiteurs
pénètrent graduellement dans une zone d'eau
calme protégée. Un escalier et une rampe
d'accès donnent accès aux nageurs de tous les
niveaux.
Un pont en acier galvanisé renforce la
diagonale du sentier de la plage, s'infléchit
au milieu pour laisser passer les canoës et
kayaks et relie visuellement entre eux la
jetée, la descente et les gradins. Une plateforme située à l'extrémité de la jetée permet
aux nageurs de sauter dans l'eau profonde.
Porté par de grosses houles du côté sud de
la jetée, le nageur s'abandonne au frisson
des éléments, avec des échelles de sortie
sécuritaires à portée de bras.
« Il est louable que les concepteurs aient
modifié, quasi accidentellement, la conception
du projet en fonction de l'utilisation de l'espace
par les gens, a noté le jury. Ils ont réalisé que
l'eau était un élément important du patrimoine
de Kingston, et ce projet reconnecte les gens
non seulement avec l'eau, mais aussi avec leur
passé. »
