WALKABLE CALGARY

East Village Interactive Exhibit

 

Calgary is a city that is alive and growing. However, it has struggled with being a very car dependent city. East Village is a area that is currently in development, and it has very purposefully attempted to become a community that is diverse and easily walkable. I thought it would be interesting to explore this aspect of the East Village, and of Calgary in general, as a exhibition topic. I incorporation information graphics and interactive elements into the exhibit to lead the viewer through the  display. The first two panels explain that Calgarians want a more walkable city. The third panel illustrates the elements that contribute to a walkable community. Finally, the exhibit explains how East Vilage is beig developped to reflect these "walkability" principles.
