OCAD Faculty conduct King Street Pilot Survey

 

Monday, October 15, 2018 - 9:45am

As part of Visual Analytics Lab's large urban design research project, iCITY, researchers have been conducting a survey (the "Walkable Street Survey") for the King Street Pilot. 

iCITY project member Jeremy Bowes, MARCH, AOCA and Professor in the Faculty of Design, states, "It would be great if any of you who visit the art and King street experience, especially now with the 'unzipped pavilion' by BIG architects, could comment. The survey takes about 12 to 14 minutes, so it has a lot of detailed design related questions, and the usual demographic questions from the city at the end."

The survey, which is still open to anyone interested in providing their pedestrian experience of streetscapes in urban Toronto, can be found here: https://bit.ly/2ycrbil
