This session is about the future of Canadian cities and the way their built form will evolve as they have been, and are affected, by trends in globalization and immigration. The session purpose is to develop design strategies to establish a built identity for communities shared by Canadians and new immigrants seeking life in Canada.
The core of this learning session is based on joint form and functions both in traditional cities and suburb of Toronto. The session represents a three-example design project. The first project is a house as a private realm and the other two, which represent a public realm, are, café and shopping plaza.
