  • Thinking Local: An Architecture for Humanity Toronto Lecture - Spacing Toronto
    integrating into the community When speaking about Dixon Hall a homeless shelter organisation Charles Rosenberg recounted the preconceptions about shelter design that had been transformed by the end users their firm had engaged with The result was a building that truly supported those who used it and helped it be accepted by the local residents During his presentation Rosenberg quoted Architecture for Humanity s book saying design like you give a damn prompting people to approach a problem and get angry at it When designers and architects become activists for urban and community issues they create innovative and relevant solutions He said Architecture has to work really hard so people need to push the design of buildings and public spaces beyond just their assigned programs Much of Joe Lobko s talk reflected on the advocacy and policy work the firm has been involved in including issues of public health and walkability He believes solutions are going to come from people in communities and related this to various urban agriculture projects around Toronto that were started out of a need and a desire from local residents including the Black Creek Sustainable Neighbourhood Retrofit Action Plan SNAP in the Jane Finch neighbourhood He also spoke about Nick Saul and Community Food Centres Canada with the notion that projects can inspire other projects as Saul brings the success and lessons from The Stop to a greater network of food provision centres around the country The theme of food was a focus of a few projects during the event As mobile food vending in the city is a frequently difficult challenge facing Toronto Levitt spoke about Market 707 outside the Scadding Court Community Centre with which they were involved in 2010 They took the sort of guerilla strategy of asking forgiveness rather than permission The food stalls located in retrofitted shipping containers are considered part of a program rather than revenue generators which help its vendors more easily obtain permits and licences The small market has aided the transformation of the Dundas Bathurst intersection as the Community Centre took charge of changing their corner of the city rather than waiting for City Council to suggest top down improvements For me what seemed to be the over arching message of the evening was thinking local does not need to just come from the perspective of the designer architect or city planner as a way of engaging the community stake holders in a project but it also relies on the average citizen to prompt discourse and change These are the people that know their communities the best and will be there to help promote and sustain projects at this local level Levitt seemed to be heartened that increasingly a great impact can be made with less access or ability needed in order to effect change on a smaller scale The next lecture in this series will be held on Tuesday May 21 2013 on the theme of Thinking Global Photos by Architecture for Humanity Toronto top

    a 1920s Argentinian icebox located behind the bar We got it at SMASH two doors down from us says Fisher They have some amazing stuff and a lot of places in town go to them to find great unique pieces We took the icebox and gutted it and use it for our draft lines It s so well built that it keeps the lines cold without any electrical refrigeration explained Fisher The reflective tin ceilings are custom made from Texas I arranged to get someone I knew a roll of tin and had the tiles custom pressed for me otherwise they would have been too expensive to buy from any place I could find he said This contemporary brewery could easily fit in at Yonge and Dundas but the Junction will stay home to the Indie Ale House and their beer barrels The brewery produces 12 beers with three to five beers that are always available and up to 10 brews that rotate through the seasons If you time your visit right you may be able to taste one of their special occasion beers So far they have created 60 batches of 28 different types of beer A mix of modern inspiration and vintage architecture sets the tone for this distinct brewery in the heart of the Junction Cheers View more photos of the Indie Ale House Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Related Posts Come to our Public Space Invaders film night Wednesday Exploring the busy basements makeshift markets of Regent Park with Civic Salon The transformer next door Tweet More posts by Kayla Jane Barrie 3 comments Neither the author nor Spacing necessarily agrees with posted comments Spacing reserves the right to edit or delete comments entirely See our Comment Policy trisha 3 years
