I had the good fortune to attend a presentation on January 18, 2012 by John W. Danahy of the University of Toronto faculty of architecture, landscape, and design.
The talk, organized by the Lakeshore Planning Council Inc., was at the Mimico Centennial Library.
In a previous post, I speculated about the differences, if any, between the charette procedure at the Lakeview Legacy Project as compared to the Mimico 2020 charette.
I would say that the Lakeview charette procedure appears to have involved a level of community input – spread out over a longer period of time, and involving a markedly different approach to strategic thinking – that makes the Mississauga effort significantly different from the one associated with Mimico 2020.
I found this talk highly inspiring.
