Project done in collaboration with Jia Jia Shi, Hrishi Tailor and Michael Wideman
Loop Lab envisions the Golden Mile neighborhood in Mississauga as a
laboratory for new transport technologies. As a direct response to the growing consumer demand for convenience,
new infrastructural typologies have been introduced to refresh this suburb of solely big box stores and employment
lands. These typologies would be made up of autonomous vehicular
loops, drone delivery through the hydro corridor and green energy.
The phasing for this new city would
allow for as much of the site to be accessible to pedestrians. The animation to the right shows how
the phasing would be undertaken. 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 neighborhood. The primary loops would
then come in to connect the larger streets of Eglinton, Birchmount, and Warden. Tree canopy would be added
to the central green islands after the installation of these new infrastructural elements.
