‘Inverted Valleys’ is part of a series of canopies that quickly create inviting public spaces while leaving the area beneath untouched and freely useable.
In this sense, the aim of ‘Inverted Valleys’ is twofold: one hope is that the focus on the unique geography of Toronto’s ravine systems motivates people to be more aware and appreciative of the incredibly valuable (but underused) natural resources in our city. The second, more overarching aim, is that the continued use of interstitial urban spaces (alleys, lanes and pathways) for installation works encourages people to rethink what is possible in terms of how we engage with the built environment.
‘Inverted Valleys’ is one four projects that are part of ‘DesignTO Tours: Connection Points’ on Sun, Jan 19 from 1-2pm. Click here for full details and to RSVP.
