The Loyola shuttle bus shelter design competition is just the beginning, says Carmela Cucuzzella, associate professor in the Department of Design and Computation Arts, who initiated CoLLaboratoire through her new position as Concordia University research chair in Integrated Design, Ecology and Sustainability for the Built Environment (IDEAS-BE).
In the coming months, designers, professionals and students will be invited to help design a series of art-based installations that reflect on sustainable living in Montreal.
“The long-term plan is to build an urban narrative using these installations along the length of Sherbrooke Street which will contribute to climate change awareness,” she says.
“We’re using design to engage people with the issue of climate change at a local level.”
From June 16 to 29, vote for your favourite Loyola Campus solar-powered bus shelter design.
