Read Time: 1.5 minutes

To show its support for Toronto Pride, a month-long Pride celebration that is among the largest in the world, longtime Pride sponsor Toronto-Dominion Bank wanted to install a large, circular rainbow graphic on the ground of the courtyard by its headquarters. TD Bank wanted the chosen graphic to be cost-effective, but it also needed a graphic that would be durable enough to withstand five weeks of heavy foot traffic and outdoor weather conditions.

Design Within Reach—Graduate Thesis

Finalist 2019
Design Within Reach

This practicum project borrows from the narrative qualities of a typical exhibition as a means to guide the design of both public spaces and exhibition halls. Through the examination of the cultural context of the museum’s theme and location, design guidelines and the pedigree of the adaptive reuse, this project gave the designer a better understanding of the function of museums, the role of culture and heritage in design, and how to design a better visitor experience for all.
