Associate Professor Alissa North will present Master of Landscape Architecture student work related to Toronto’s ravines and created in various studios at the University of Toronto’s Daniels Faculty. Starting with the overriding idea that rivers are dynamic systems, studio participants imagined and represented the pressing issues within ravines in new and novel ways. The students conceived creative methods for mutual and optimal productivity between the ravines and the city toward systems of dynamic ecological integrity. The work is meant to inspire how we can think imaginatively about our relationships with Toronto’s ravines.
North’s book, Ravine Re-Create: Design Ideas for Toronto’s Ravines, will be available for sale following the talk.
