National Call to Designers and Researchers for Designing for the Cold

The Design Exchange (DX), in partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration, the Health, Care, Technology and Place CIHR Strategic Training Program (HCTP), University of Toronto and the Change Foundation, is pleased to announce an open call for submissions to include in the Designing for the Cold exhibition.

The goals of this exhibition are to raise awareness about how Canadians experience the winter, to identify the physical exigencies and to exhibit design solutions applicable to winter environments. Designers from all disciplines and researchers from all health sciences are encouraged to submit work in the form of research posters or design models/illustrations.

The project abstract deadline is July 15, 2005, and the Designing for the Cold exhibition will run from November 2-27, 2005 at the Chalmers Design Centre in Toronto’s Design Exchange.
