We are designing an innovative proto-model toolkit with Sidewalk Labs to create a new mass-timber constructed mixed-use neighbourhood in Toronto, Canada
Designing the proto-model toolkit is an extraordinary opportunity to draw ideas and technologies from a wide range of fields and distill them into a highly refined collection of building elements and systems. These elements will become the foundation for entire mass-timber neighbourhoods that are flexible and responsive to the needs of a dynamic community. The project aims to create a new urban community that addresses the current and future challenges of energy use, health and wellbeing, housing affordability and transportation, and will serve as a model for sustainable neighbourhoods around the world
The first phase of the project will be Quayside, located at Parliament Slip, just southeast of Downtown Toronto.
