Emerging Ecologies at DesignTO 2021 | Part of the

The Istituto Italiano di Cultura Toronto is pleased to present Emerging Ecologies, the next installment in the Italy Under Construction series, as part of the 2021 DesignTO lineup.  The exhibition will be available for viewing on the Italy Under Construction website.  In addition, a special video presentation of the exhibition will launch on the YouTube channel of the Istituto on Thursday, January 21st.

Curated by Roberto Damiani, Emerging Ecologies presents a selection of eight built urban projects from Italy and Canada that show how public agencies and interdisciplinary teams of designers are working together to envision more socially and environmentally sustainable scenarios for our built environments.

Building on a new understanding of cities as landscapes of interconnected ecosystems, the eight projects, organized into four subthemes - infrastructure, landform, post-industrial and waterfront - offer examples of ecological adaptive reuse and land reclamation of post-industrial sites in Caltagirone, Kingston, Milan, Montreal, Toronto, Turin and Venice.
