‘actions: what you can do with the city’

the canadian centre for architecture (cca), montréal, canada november 26, 2008 – april 19, 2009

‘actions: what you can do with the city’ is the latest exhibition at the canadian centre for architecture. the exhibit focuses on 97 ‘actions’, that challenge people to think differently about how to walk, play, recycle, and garden in order to reshape the city. these experimental interactions with the city demonstrate an individual’s power to instigate positive change and encourage other to participate. the range of actions presented spans the gamet from skating and parkour to dumpster diving and urban foraging. the exhibit features contemporary architectural projects, design concepts and research conveyed through a range of materials including architectural drawings, photographs, videos, publications, artifacts and websites. a catalogue that features 30 essays and 34 specific actions accompanies the exhibit and is pictured below.
