How can a waterfront move beyond the edge of a city and into an entire region?
What if the waterfront was a facilitator for all the living connections that make up a region?
How can we build our own living connections into our process to design an integrated strategy to make this happen?
These were some of the questions that we asked ourselves throughout our partnership with Waterfront Toronto, the organization with the extraordinary task of redeveloping and revitalizing Toronto's massive waterfront. Through a process of research, collaboration, prototyping and a hefty desire to understand and improve the region that we live in, the Institute without Boundaries developed an integrated design strategy and three design projects that connect Toronto's Waterfront to the wider Greater Golden Horseshoe Region. This is the story of how it happened and how it works.
