Mississauga Hosts U of T Student Exhibition "missisSAUGA EX: A Celebration of Culture and Metropolis

May 04, 2007

Students from the Graduate Program of Architecture at the University of Toronto re-imagine the urban face of Mississauga in an exhibition at the Mississauga Civic Centre Great Hall.

Dates/Times:  Tuesday May 8, 2007 (2:00 p.m.) to Saturday May 12 (5:00 p.m.)
Opening Reception:  Tuesday May 8, 2007 (7:30 to 9:00 p.m.)
Location:  Civic Centre Great Hall, 300 City Centre Drive

The university's second year Graduate Studio, "Culture and the Metropolis," collaborated with the City's Planning and Building Department to use Mississauga as a venue to explore contemporary urban culture and form. As one of the fastest growing urban areas in North America located at the heart of Canada's Golden Horseshoe, Mississauga provides a fascinating case study of urban growth.


In a semester-long project, teams of students chose several different sites in Mississauga and re-conceived their purpose and appearance. Projects proposed a wide range of innovative development schemes influenced by the evolution toward an expanded rapid transit system, and destinations where residents and visitors can connect to various communities and environments.

The exhibition will celebrate both collaborative and individual proposals presented as master plans and scale models exploring concepts and how residents would experience these developments.
