Rees Ridge, designed by @why_site in collaboration with @brookmcilroy @aruparchitects, has won an international design competition aiming to rethink a Toronto waterfront park. Inspired by the city’s Scarborough Bluffs, Rees Ridge is a man-made bluff that shields users from traffic noises, promotes biodiversity and creates a room within the city.

Italian architect @fabionovembre has created a striking look for Briscola-Pizza Society, one of Italy’s first home-grown chain restaurants, launching at two new locations in Milan🍕With a six-metre high Queen Margherita statue, tiles by @lea_ceramiche, pyramid ceiling lights by @flos and playing-card characters emblazoned on its walls, these interiors are recognizable – and replicable on an international scale.

We’re back from @cersaie, where we saw what’s new (and what’s next) in the world of ceramic tiles and bathrooms. From wallpaper-like tiles, like @abkemozioni's pictured Dark Edition to star-studded group exhibitions, there was a lot to see – and we’ve compiled our highlights at http://www.azuremagazine.com/design

Last week, Toronto’s new Museum of Contemporary Art opened to much fanfare after numerous delays. It was well worth the wait. Occupying the first five floors of a 10-storey converted factory, the @mocatoronto balances architectural integrity with suitability and versatility as an artistic showcase.

Drenched in sunlight thanks to two walls of street-facing windows, Montreal’s Pastel Rita is a hybrid artisanal workshop-boutique-coffee shop that reflects the creative energy of the Mile End neighbourhood. Designed by local firm Appareil Architecture, the large windows allow passers-by a peek within, where rich jewel tones and unique architectural detailing draw them inside.
