Winter Design

Winter by Design 

Note: The numbering system connects the goals and activities to the Implementation Plan.

Goals of the Winter Design Pillar:

  • D1 - Incorporate urban design for winter fun activity, beauty and interest
  • D2 - Design our communities for winter safety and comfort

What we were up to this past winter:

Designing for Winter
Sponsored Designing Downtown – Pecha Kucha 17, and through a creative presence raised awareness about the need to use a winter lens (in support of Goals D1 and D2).

Creative Design
Supported a demonstration project for video projection mapping on a house at Candy Cane Lane (in support of Goal D2).

What we’re working on now:

Developing winter design guidelines that outline performance expectations including consideration for safe, comfortable and aesthetic winter design. Guidelines will also include recommendations for their adoption. (Action D1.1)
