Beyond what water is, to what water means


To immerse people in the idea of Lake Simcoe becoming a hub for water innovation, research and learning , 23 Master of Architecture students at Ryerson University, inspired by water, designed travelling “pop up” exhibition spaces.

Their designs – even without exhibits in them – offer powerful connections with the meaning of water and ways to see our future differently.
