What does it mean to have a human connection to a place? What’s the future of transportation in Calgary? How can we design our city for those who motor in two wheels instead of walk, or for those who don’t drive? What physical barriers might we shed?

Let’s continue the conversation about Movement where we left off last January, and join us for the opening reception of Movement: an exhibition. The winning entries of the Movement call for ideas will be on display from May 23 to June 14.

NO RSVP necessary.

The exhibition will run from May 23 through June 14, 2019 at the Castell Building (old Central Library) downtown. Gallery hours: 12 - 6 p.m.

During this time, you can stop in for a chit-chat in the gallery, click here for gallery pop-up event details.

Thanks to everyone who shared a picture or a story to #dtalksmove, selected submissions will also be on display in the exhibition.


Winning Ideas

Metabolic Movements: Recovering Riparia through Slow Flows  by Tawab Hlimi is an idea about slow infrastructure that juxtaposes two layers of movement: that of complete streets optimized for pedestrian and bicycle safety, along with a layer of stormwater flows that considers daylighting the Confederation Creek. Linked through the common flows of people and water, road and riparian corridors are visualized as a hybrid metabolic network, integrating geographic notions of ‘place’ with infrastructural imperative of ‘performance’.
