Actions: What You Can Do with the City November 2008

Actions, an exhibition at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, explores how everyday human efforts can instigate positive change in contemporary cities. Activities such as gardening, recycling, playing, and walking are pushed beyond their usual definition by the 99 international architects, artists, and collectives featured in the exhibition. These experimental interactions with the urban environment show the potential for new forms of participation by city residents. Project Projects collaborated with the CCA on the exhibition design, which includes a large number of print pieces intended to provide a material form for documentation of ephemeral urban activities.
