Design Charette


On October 17, University of Waterloo design students teamed up with community and Yorklands members to create preliminary concept designs for the site.  The charrette was a brain storming session for the students, who divided into groups and created designs for the property, with specific themes in mind: adaptive reuse, brownfield remediation, wetland and natural area restoration, connectivity, eco-tourism, heritage revitalization, urban agriculture and energy sustainability. At this stage designs are conceptual, but the ideas being generated have significant value in the future design of the site.
