Dunford Street, Toronto, ON, Canada, 2015[open in full screen]  

 
 

This space still exist in the middle of Greek town. Public space with all the elements of a traditional european square. It seems that traditional habits and needs are still alive, even after a couple of generations. All the services, comforts and resources necessary are there.

  Let's list them: one monument of Alexander the Great, a significant Greek historical figure; one backdrop with vines, a reminder of the grapevines of the Mediterranean, water feature, and few pleasant patios.

Over the years, since 2005 when I first time observed this space, it is quite improved, very vital and used, day and night.

  An excellent example of how with little effort, a very pleasant urban space can be created when the community is willing to pay attention to the messages sent by their city.
