Columbia Park – Will Xiao and Steve Li

We interpret the idea of inclusivity as a mixture of diverse matter. Just like the fact that different rivers merge into the ocean, despite of their origins. The immigrants from other counties to Canada is just like the flow of rivers, and they bring their cultures, which as a result, creates diversity.

InterPlay Park – Alwyn Rutherford, Charlotte Chen and Marco Leung

Inclusive design is accessible, adaptable and multifunctional, serving the needs of a diverse population. We predict that increased development and population density will result in declining green space ownership and equity of access to nature.

Flow Park – Chloe Naese and Veronica Sheng

With the concept of inclusivity in mind, our design for Flow Park accommodates both current and future residents by serving as a respite from the urban environment and creates a synergy between city residents and the natural world.

The Nest – Alex Williams and Julianna Neudorf

Our aim with this project was to explore how inclusive design can be applied beyond anthropocentric design principles. In many cases, the animals that we cohabitate with in our cities are left as an afterthought, if considered at all. By approaching this inclusive space with more of an ecocentric framework, we were able to create a sanctuary for both certain species of birds as well as for people.

Columbia Park – Nicole Dulong, Angelic Ragandac and Meredith Wilson

We believe inclusive design should acknowledge those who are lost, consider those who are present, and make room for those who are coming. Some tangible forms of inclusive design in a landscape context include diverse and flexible programming, accessible circulation routes, universal signage, and native planting that supports a range of species.

Missing Temporalities – Samantha Miller and Caleb Van der Leek

Missing temporalities was a mission to explore how we can provide pockets of joy and temporal experiences to residents and visitors, regardless of any of the factors that divide us. Experiences with water are an innate need, and something that unites all people. Inclusivity means that no one should feel there are exceptions of use targeted at them, and everyone should be able to explore the same unique experiences at every level.

Oakridge Meadow – Pierre Tulk, Claire Hicks and Marie Pudlas

For our group, inclusive design was a process rooted in empathy that involved acknowledging our differences while also seeking what connects us. We found that play and playfulness was a common thread that builds relationships with ourselves, others, and the world around us.

Columbia Market Gardens – Kristian Lebitania and Tyler Adam

To us, inclusivity meant fostering a sense of belonging in marginalized groups with honest reflection given to the histories of space and facilitating their interaction through the provision of accessible activities in a non-commercial environment.
