VOLUME 37: FUTURE LEGACIES

“2017 marks Canada’s sesquicentennial anniversary. With 150 years to reflect upon, this anniversary compels us to cast a critical eye on the legacies of the past century and a half and how they stand up to their early visions; and simultaneously to project ideas for what the next 10, 50, 100 or 150 will bring.”

FUTURE LEGACIES DESIGN COMPETITION

In parallel with Volume 37: Future Legacies and in conjunction with the 2017 celebration of Canada’s sesquicentennial anniversary, the editors of The Site Magazine launched a competition inviting submissions that, through design, would take a position on the future history of Canada’s national project. Entrants were challenged to develop proposals that considered the nation’s history and current context, and simultaneously offered new perspectives on the role of legacy as a driving force in the creation of the nation.

FUTURE LEGACIES EXHIBITION

The Future Legacies Exhibition took place at Artscape Youngplace in Toronto. It was scheduled from September 8-14, 2017 and extended until September 21.

The exhibition showcased the speculative design projects that our Jury selected as winners of the Future Legacies Design Competition: five winners, five runners up, and five honourable mentions.

The winners were selected from submissions that came from across Canada, as well as seven different countries internationally. The submissions reflect the spectrum of Canadian geography, culture, population, and politics, and raise pertinent questions to be considered as we move forward collectively.
