New Ideas and Investment for Calgary
An unique collaboration between Grade Six students at Langevin School and the University of Calgary's Faculty of Design graduate students studying green infrastructure, has resulted in the The Fourth Avenue Flyover Project. Combining play with ecological infrastructure the two groups designed plans to transform the uninviting public space under the Fourth Avenue Flyover in Bridgeland. Some of the creative ideas include rain gardens, swings and skating rinks and permanent outdoor exercise equipment. We look forward to a presentation on their ideas as part of the program for the Calgary Conference. Click here for more information on this project.
