Putting Pedestrians First

Designers from all disciplines have a critical role to play in developing human-centred streetscapes that put pedestrians first. In January 2010 DIAC collaborated with the City of Toronto and the Toronto Society of Architects to organize a Designers Forum in support of the Toronto Walking Strategy. DIAC assembled a cross-disciplinary panel of design experts (representing ACIDO, ARIDO, RDG Ontario, TSA and OALA) to share their insights and recommendations.
