Cityplace boasts Pierre Poussin’s Mitosis Courtyard: two-dozen columns with circular patterns inspired by cell division. They come across as orderly, phosphorescent mushrooms that bring a sense of play and enjoyment to the Gardiner.

— Ben Mills, Public Art Management
Toronto’s Poussin first trained as a biochemist, and it shows. […] The result? An unlikely sense of play and enjoyment brought to the dark underbelly of the Gardiner. Granted, litter around the courtyard means some of the underpass’s dinginess remains, but it’s a great example of how art and design could grow good vibes for this overlooked zone in the future.
