The trip is the 1st step of your FINAL assignment for this course, it is worth 15% of your final mark. It is very important that you attend the trip.

The trip has 2 parts 

  1. Eco-lution Tour : these are 10 examples of Green Building Technologies in practice right now in the urban landscape of Toronto. This is 1st hand research for your Green Vanier Project.
  2. Kensington Market: A very “organic” Toronto experience, it is a neighbourhood that has offered much refuge for immigrants over the years to its transition into a very livable area in Toronto. Take note of “livable” and “green spaces.” Good ideas to think of when you build your livable and green Vanier
