Green Corridor 2012, is an experience like no other.. since day one we have been thrown into the creative process, and told to think “outside of the box.”
Our team consists of four members, Syed Raza, a business student, Kate Stasiak, an environmental studies student specializing in resource management, Rachel Bondy, an environmental studies student specializing in policy and values, and Caleigh Arthur, a visual arts student. Together, as an interdisciplinary team, we will work to change Windsor’s downtown center.
As we began to narrow down what our area of interest would be for the project, we decided it would be best to each write down one word that symbolized a downtown sector. The themes of recycling, businesses, cafes, and community, were brought forward.
The mind map above, is a replica of the one our group created. The initial four ideals branched off in many directions.
Ultimately, we decided that the main issue with the downtown city center, was that it is not considered a gathering place for the community as much of this attention had been focused on the waterfront area. We want to do a project that will not only increase the foot traffic in the area, which in turn helps business, but, also create a fun environment that depicts a greener metropolitan area.
More details to come!
