Visualization Toolkit

The Meadoway
Visualization Toolkit

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) has partnered with Perkins+Will and Future Landscapes to develop a visualization toolkit that demonstrates the potential future look and feel of The Meadoway.

The purpose of this tool is to amplify and celebrate The Meadoway through a compelling visual identity and narrative. It includes conceptual renderings, sketches and animations.

VISUALIZATION TOOLKIT MAP

This map, which spans an impressive seven metres, was developed as a tool for our public engagement events. Participants can view the entire length of The Meadoway, point out areas of opportunity, and offer feedback.

The edge of the map features a variety of “mini-activities” that provide supplemental information and encourage further conversation.

The map is fully labelled, highlighting community connections, future trail alignments, future crossings, and natural corridors.

VISUALIZATION TOOLKIT REPORT

At the beginning of the year-long project to develop the Visualization Toolkit, Perkins and Will issued an extensive report with case studies and an overview.
