An innovative modular public seating solution made from salvaged and sustainable materials. Cayuga’s gently sloping, rolling shape recalls the layers of glacial till that form the landscape in this part of southern Ontario. The base of the seating, made from a sustainable composite material of cement and reclaimed wood chips, was manufactured in way that echoes the brick making technology once used at Don Valley Brick Works.

Winner of the 2014 Design by Nature competition.
