Infrastructure and Design / Design, Technology and Urbanism

Infrastructure and Design logo







Focusing on the main subway stations around the University of Toronto St. George campus, our goal is to understand what types of urban activities develop in and around these stations. We aim to achieve this by examining circulatory patterns, types of social interaction, levels of inclusivity and accessibility, and design. By looking at contemporary and historical precedents, we hope to construct an intellectual framework in which to understand the connections between transportation, infrastructure, and public space.
