PLAN 211 Design Studio Showcase - Final Projects

This most recent term (Winter '23), our PLAN211 - Design Studio Foundations course partnered with the Sustainability Office to produce urban design visualizations that explore the possibilities of what the future of the University of Waterloo campus could look like when meeting the University’s sustainability goals. The culmination of this partnership is the students' final projects, showcased below. 

Students were asked to visualize UWaterloo's campus in 2050 by taking an outdoor area on campus and introducing elements of biophilic design, enhanced paths for walking and cycling, transit, water features, vibrant public spaces, and outdoor learning spaces. The final product includes computer renderings of their vision, and detailed breakdowns of the variety of benefits their design could provide. These works can also be viewed as PDFs at the following link.
