Future Cities: A Focus On Human-Centred Urbanism Enabled By Technology

Friday, February 23, 2018 3:41 pm

I became involved in Sidewalk Labs in 2015 —before there was any idea of the project coming to Toronto. I participated in a think tank in New York that was made up of urbanists and technologists who came together to brainstorm and explore the potential of new technology to make city life better.

Looking upwards is becoming a critical element of our design vocabulary. On February 15, 2018, the NCC’s Urbanism Lab program explored the varied elements of planning the sky.

The Future of the Capital Pathway: Let's Talk !

Friday, February 9, 2018 9:30 am

Whether cross-country skiing just to enjoy being active, biking around to discover the National Capital Region, or walking to get from point A to point B: there are lots of good reasons to take the Capital Pathway, one of the largest networks of multi-use paths in North America. In summer and in winter, tens of thousands of Canadians — residents and tourists — use the pathway, including me. And because I’m working on its future development, I need your help.
