RavineLine Toronto proposes large-scale social infrastructure projects that is composed of community services, recreation and education to the ravine system.



The issue

Toronto has one of the largest ravines in North America but it is an under utilized and lacks of engagement from the public.  

About the book Design

When designing the book, I took consideration of how to minimize the environmental impact without compromising on design. We decided to go with a limited print and I proposed doing a smaller book size, choosing a recycled paper and binding the book with oversized cooper staples added a industrial look. 

About the project

Ideas were generated through an International Charrette held by Institute without Boundaries Our City within a Park: Desiging social infrastructure for Toronto’s urban ravines, to read more about the project and the students who've designed it, visit here.
