The Future of My Community – An Urban Design Challenge

Technological Design students at Father Henry Carr Catholic Secondary School were challenged to review and analyze a specific area in their immediate neighbourhood and propose a visionary redevelopment scheme that would address the future needs of their community. The site chosen for analysis was the former Father Henry Carr site in north Etobicoke. Students developed and produced models, drawings, and a written brief of their proposals. The activity was enriched with a guest speaker from the City of Toronto Urban Planning Department. The activity allowed students to deal with a real set of circumstances in their own community, in addition to bridging careers in urban planning, architecture, and engineering.
