City Systems is a multi-year project conducted by the Institute without Boundaries (IwB) at George Brown College in Toronto, Canada. The project helps students studying ‘Interdisciplinary Design Strategy’ understand and design more resilient cities during an intensive, hands-on project year. The class of 2011-12 focused on resolving the challenges facing the edge city of Markham, a car-centric suburban community at the edge of Toronto, as it continues to experience rapid population growth. The resulting project, called COLAB, includes a proposal for a new kind of neighborhood: a model sustainable community supported by a 3-way partnership between municipality, local businesses and residents.
