PROJECT VISION

1

SOUTHWAY VILLAGE COMMUNITY DESIGN | INSITE DESIGN


VISION STATEMENT Our team aims to transform Kitchener’s Fairway area into a vibrant, connected, and sustainable neighbourhood, while enhancing the community’s quality of life. This redevelopment strives to promote community activity, revitalization of the economic market, and unification of the urban fabric. We want to encourage mixed-use areas, redesign the streetscapes, and improve greenspaces to accommodate a diverse range of users. Through this project, we will emphasize sustainability measures and incorporate ecosystem services to reach climate change targets, while accommodating for future growth through intensification.

SOUTHWAY VILLAGE COMMUNITY DESIGN | INSITE DESIGN


To enable better understanding and communication of a project, physical models can complement or replace traditional drawings…working models used during design development enhance understanding of spatial and sequential relationships.”

Design is the playful creation and strict evaluation of the possible forms of something, including how it is to be made... city design is the art of creating possibilities for the use, management, and form of settlements or their significant parts.” — Lynch (1981)
