The City of Ottawa sought to revitalize the ByWard Market plaza. Established in the 1820's, ByWard Market is Canada's oldest farmer's market and located in Canada's capital city Ottawa, Ontario.

Studio Red Landscape Architecture infused their streetscape design with seating in the shape of crates, produced in a variety of sizes to be configured and stacked in a stylized layout. The crate elements referenced ByWard Market's frenetic and enterprising past and evoke the feeling of an active marketplace.

Maglin manufactured the custom designed crate seating with steel bases; powder-coated in corten and topped with durable Ipe wood.

LED lighting incorporated inside the crates casts an inviting glow and welcomes the public to enjoy the ByWard Market plaza well after twilight. A few crates employ a unique misting feature which mimics fog rolling in from an imagined wharf, reinforcing the feel of an active marketplace. The misting feature also serves to cool down visitors, people and pets alike, on hot summer days.

Materials: Steel, Ipe wood
