From the “Garden City” to the “Radiant City” and from Brasilia to Songdo, people have dreamed of the perfect city…and sometimes even tried to build it.
The Upper Toronto Design Charrette is an event to connect newcomers and established city building professionals through the creation of visionary designs for Toronto 75 years in the future. Participants will transcend everyday reality through a game-based process that enables them to share their local and international approaches to design problems and the key challenges within their fields of professional practice. Newcomers will be able to demonstrate their knowledge and creativity while established professionals can broaden their horizons and rethink local conundrums. A science fiction civic vision of Toronto will result, one based on a themed scenario and attendees’ collaborative efforts of imagination and dialogue.
