Thanks to a partnership between York and the University of Toronto, under the Principal Investigator-ship of Susan Ruddick at U of T Geography, this past weekend saw a Habitecture Workshop held in Toronto. It brought together architects, ecologists, philosophers, social scientists, and practitioners to think about a city where wildlife and humans could coexist. The presentations were excellent, and everybody was very committed to working together on the objective of a better human-wildlife relationship, through design. I was very happy to be a part of it. I am tempted to list everybody that was involved and everything that was presented, but that will actually be posted (all the talks were video recorded) in the days to come. In the meantime, check out this writeup in Metro!
The workshop was funded by SSHRC Insight Grant 584942: Crossing Boundaries
