Reimagine, redesign, and recreate "Tiny Town," the 40-year-old scale model of the city of Toronto. It should serve the needs of a diverse range of people - from tourists to citizens, and from students to businesses. All while being accessible to visitors of all ages, ranges of ability, and needs.
The model should also be easy to update, and facilitate data integration and AR/VR experiences.
Watch a short video of how the model will support an Augmented Reality (AR) experience.
The AR prototype could allow citizens of Toronto to Submit:
We worked with the community to ensure that the AR deployment will be useful to tourists, city planners, developers, and citizens of all abilities.
The physical models are 3D printed at Humber College, by Humber students. The workflows and automation required to take the City's 3D Massing Data and convert it into 3D printable files was developed by Humber Students.
The model is designed as a system that is easily to update, modular, but also inexpensive to maintain
A mixed team of designers brought the project up off the whiteboard and to life.
Have been working together over the years on this project, towards two main outputs
The team used many prototyping and data gathering tools:
