DATES | 25 February - 30 April; 3 March, 6:00 pm (opening reception)

LOCATION | Design Exchange, 234 Bay Street, Toronto

INFORMATION | http://www.ryerson.ca/carrotcity/

DESCRIPTION | Get informed about how the design of cities and buildings is enabling the production of food in the city. Explore the role that creative design professionals have in relation to the food system of cities. Learn about the impact that agricultural issues will have on the design of urban spaces and buildings as society addresses the issues of a more sustainable pattern of living. Carrot City addresses how the increasing interest in growing food within the city, supplying food locally, and food security in general is changing urban design and built form. The exhibition highlights projects in Toronto and other Canadian cities, illustrating how they are changing cities and buildings. International examples illustrate ideas that could be used in Canadian cities. The exhibition combines a mix of realised projects and speculative design proposals that illustrate the potential for future design that focuses on food issues.
