Can nature thrive (or even survive) in an urban jungle? Can ecology and architecture be successfully integrated? Ryerson students are taking a critical and creative look at nature and infrastructure with Ecological Urbanism, a new exhibit at Urbanspace Gallery.
The exhibition showcases innovative ecological design research by urban planning and landscape architecture students, envisioning a more sustainable future for Toronto. An interdisciplinary melding of research and design, the exhibition is a collaboration between the Ryerson City Building Institute, the Ecological Design Lab, the Ryerson School of Urban and Regional Planning, and the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design.
Ecological Urbanism runs at the Urbanspace Gallery (401 Richmond St. W.) until May 14.
