We are always thinking about entertainment design, how it works and how it can be even better.
As landscape architects that work on local, sacred Indigenous land, it’s important we acknowledge and pay respect to its people, treaties, culture, and important issues, along with continuing to learn how we can grow to become better partners. In honour of National Indigenous Peoples Day, FORREC is privileged to be able to share our work and process in creating an outdoor play area for Native Child and Family Services of Toronto (NCFST) and their new Aboriginal Child and Family Centre in Toronto’s Mount Dennis community.
Landscape architecture is an integral part of any experience design, including revitalizing distinctive urban spaces. How do you keep the history of a landmark but also bring it back to life? Meet: The Generator.
Looking at the big picture for a moment, we know that it will be some time before people will feel safe and will want to share experiences together again. However, as the past has shown us, people will be eager to spend time together again – the flood gates will open and the pent-up demand to travel, dine out, shop, go to an event and seek thrills will emerge.
As we evolve into the new normal and people gather again, experiences that take us outside of the everyday must become more sophisticated, more engaging, and more immersive. Can imaginative storytelling provide the necessary escape we all need?
