in 2001, bruce mau design won a competition in collaboration with rem koolhaas, david oleson and petra blaisse to create a park at the perimeter of the city. the design process for the park was driven by a set of five core values that served as guiding principles in the design of the park.
1. sustainability: design the maintenance
2. stewardship: design the educational effect
3. play: redefine leisure
4. legacy: build a living database
5. beauty: design the icon
the exhibition presented the preliminary masterplan of the ‘parc downsview park’ project. sarah dorkenwald conceptualized a visual communication system for the ‘tree city’ exhibition.
