Project done in collaboration with Jia Jia Shi, Hrishi Tailor and Michael Wideman
Loop Lab envisions the Golden Mile neighbourhood
in Mississauga as a laboratory for new transport technologies. As a direct response
to the growing consumer demand for convenience, new infrastructural networks have been
introduced to refresh this suburb of solely big box stores and employment lands. These
revamped infrastructures would be made up of autonomous vehicular loops, drone delivery
service through the hydro corridor and green energy.
The phasing for this
new city would allow for as much of the site to be accessible.
Micro loops(carrying the autonomous vehicles) would be laid in after new
development is built up. Tertiary loops would then be laid in to connect the
disparate districts within the neighbourhood.
The primary loops would then come in to connect the larger streets of Eglinton,
Birchmount, and Warden. Tree canopy would then be added to the abundance of newly
available central green islands and help with reducing green
island effect all around city.
