Plans for New Peace Garden Tower

Officials have selected a new design to replace the iconic symbol of the International Peace Garden.

GPP Architecture’s design won the contest to envision a replacement for the Peace Tower at the park that straddles the U.S.-Canada border.

The current more than 30-year-old tower will be demolished this winter because of structural problems.

The new design from GPP Architecture of Winnipeg was chosen from six entries in the competition.
