Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto, Ontario

Nathan Phillips Square is Toronto’s city square and forms the front (south) entrance to Toronto City Hall. Named after Nathan Phillips, a mayor of Toronto from 1955 to 1962, the square opened in 1965. The square was designed by Viljo Revell, a Finnish architect of the functionalist school of design. Revell is most famous for designing Toronto City Hall. The square features an ice rink /reflecting pool at the south end, a peace garden in the middle, and the sculpture “The Archer” by Henry Moore ( well known for his large-scale abstract cast bronze and carved marble sculptures) at the north end in front of City Hall. At the southwest corner of the square, on Queen Street, is Oscar Nemon's statue of Sir Winston Churchill.
