Downtown is where originality and possibility collide, opening minds, expanding horizons and fueling the city’s imagination.

This project is a part of the Activate + Experiment program to test ideas through public space activations and design ideas. We’ll be trying alternative forms of wayfinding and collecting metrics to understand impacts of the design. A survey will be available in June to collect your feedback.
