Welland Canal Memorial wins a Niagara Biennial Award

The Welland Canal Fallen Workers Memorial in St. Catharines has won a Niagara Biennial Award. This new awards program recognizes and celebrates design excellence throughout Ontario’s Niagara Region. PLANT was the landscape architect and construction services manager on this memorial project, which was designed by Dereck Revington Studio to commemorate the 137 workers who lost their lives during the current Welland Canal’s 1913 – 1932 construction. “Fallen Workers Memorial weaves a landscape within a memorial,” the jurors observed. “The monolithic forms create a strong presence and speak to the engineering marvel that the workers constructed.”
