Title: Opening Reception: Urban Design or Civic Design?

1 plus 1 equals 3 at least presents
Urban Design or Civic Design?

”Imagine small gardens on sidewalks. Imagine buying your fruits and vegetables from inner city farms. Imagine parking lots with trees, where people can gather.”

Toronto Free Gallery and "1 plus 1 equals 3 ­ at least" invite you to join activist groups, artists, designers, architects and urban planners as they re-imagine how design in our city can change in order to foster a greener Toronto.

"1 plus 1 equals 3 - At Least" invites community members concerned about our shared environments to engage in open-ended collaboration. Our first initiative asks contributors to consider what values influence the design of common spaces and shared infrastructure in our city? As environmental awareness grows and societal values shift, will city planners and designers begin greening city design?
