A place to experience everyday life in an optimistic future.

Set in the year 2033, Mason Studio, Goodee, along with various collaborators, co-create a place where the care for people and our planet comes before all else. We collectively empower communities to look at the future with excitement and joy. 

Includes a site-specific installation by Mason Studio, a Market Gallery featuring products promoting people, an indoor garden to rejuvenate the mind and body, a café playhouse for kids and adults, a hands-on workshop, a book exchange library, and a workspace for post-secondary students.
