Can the design community bring Torontonians to their feet? The Toronto Walking Strategy, which was recently adopted by Toronto City Council, outlines what it takes to make Toronto a great walking city. It was guided by three key principles: universal accessibility, safety and design excellence. But with over 50 recommendations, where do we begin and which projects will have the greatest impact? On Tuesday, January 19, 2009, join the Toronto Society of Architects for a lively discussion and debate with colleagues from the architecture, landscape architecture, interior, industrial and graphic design community.
The moderator for the event is Arlene Gould of the Design Industry Advisory Committee. Guests include Tim Poupore, Association of Chartered Industrial Designers of Ontario; Scott Torrance, Ontario Association of Landscape Architects; Antonio Gomez-Palacio, Toronto Society of Architects; Susan Mole, Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario; and Wayne McCutcheon, Association of Registered Graphic Designers.
The event kicks off at 6:00pm with drinks at the cash bar of the Arts and Letters Club, followed by the panel discussion from 6:30pm to 8:30pm in the Great Hall of the Club, which is located at 14 Elm Street in Toronto.
