This event is jointly organized by the City of Mississauga and the Council for Canadian Urbanism as part of the announcement of the winners of the City of Mississauga Urban Design Award 2021.
The Mississauga Urban Design Award celebrates the City’s ongoing desire to inspire and celebrate city builders that improve the quality of life of its residents and raise the city’s image (identity?). This year’s theme -- “Identity of Places” -- invites us to reflect on what “identity” means in our Canadian context and on how urban design plays a role in shaping this identity: how geography, cultural diversity and inclusion, climate change, and the need to advance an urban resilience agenda encourage us to design unique urban places in the Canadian context.
This panel will tackle these questions from the perspective of four leading Urban Design practitioners from across the country.
