Psychology on the Street

September 05 - November 14, 2015
Urban Space Gallery, 401 Richmond Street West, Toronto, Ontario

This exhibition is curated by Colin Ellard and the Urban Realities Laboratory at the University of Waterloo, and examines the city through the lens of a vastly complicated network of human interactions—between individuals, groups, and the physical design of city spaces. Understanding how this network functions, and how urban design influences human health, well-being, and happiness can help make better cities. Dr. Ellard’s team specializes in measuring the relationships between human behaviour and urban design using a unique approach: rather than using the traditional methods of experimental psychology, they measure urban behaviour where it actually happens—out on the street.
