This course aims to identify and provide solutions for socially sustainable development in Toronto. Students will work in groups and will be given specific under-utilized sites in Downtown Toronto. Through research of precedents that have occurred in Toronto as well as other cities, students will analyze their current site condition and identify possibilities for socially responsible urban intensification and place-making. Students complete a series of urban explorations employing various methods of documentation such as photo documentary, film, oral presentations, mapping exercises, drawings and concept models. The course will have a reading list that consists of academic sources as well as practical documents created by experts in the field.
