Humber College takes a leap forward in urban design by transforming the Lakeshore campus

July 10, 2014

Humber College in Toronto launches a new continuing education course, a summer studio called SITUATE | DESIGN | BUILD, which positions the school as a forward-thinker in urban design, architecture and craft. This class will take up residency in the L Space Gallery from July 14 to August 15, 2014.

The gallery will be transformed into an exhibition and workshop space where the community can contribute their vision for Toronto’s Ward 6, Etobicoke-Lakeshore. The Lakeshore campus will be enhanced through various building experiments which integrate into the surrounding environment. Prototypes for community gardens, heritage gazebos, and laneway sites will act as the basis for potential community urban design projects. To foster a dialogue about our community’s future, visitors are invited to a community roundtable at the gallery on July 24 from 4:00pm to 5:00pm and/or come by the gallery any time during the exhibition’s run.

The L Space Gallery features work from within Humber College, along with international and local artists as a place for students and the community to connect through a variety of interdisciplinary exhibitions. All exhibitions at the gallery are free. The gallery is open Monday to Friday from 12:00 noon to 5:00pm. Visitors are more than welcome to contact the gallery if they cannot make the opening hours to schedule an alternative visit.

The summer studio is not an initiative of the City of Toronto, but it is an educational opportunity with an aim toward meaningful conversation about design.

A closing reception takes place on August 14, 2014 between 6:00pm to 9:00pm. It is free to attend, and all are welcome.
