This spring, construction started on Ekistics' redesign of downtown Halifax's Cornwallis Park, and you can now see it taking shape. Changes will begin at the south end of the park: the old fences that cut through the site are gone, replaced with terraces and seating walls.
Earlier this year, Chris Crawford and the Ekistics architecture team were awarded a contract to renovate Fort Anne's administrative quarters, to make improvements to the overall site, and design a new facilities structure. This project is an outcome of Form:Media’s Interpretive Action and Investment Plan for Fort Anne National Historic Site.

2017 commemorates the 100th anniversary of the day in 1917 when the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, was the scene of one of the largest pre-nuclear explosions the world had ever seen. Over 2,000 people died and 9,000 were injured in the blast, the fires and the devastation wrought by the force of two ships—one an explosives vessel—colliding in the harbour. Ekistics Planning and Design has recently completed a master plan to honour the lives forever changed as a result of the Halifax Explosion.
