Seeing Student Designs Come to Life

It’s not everyday that class projects come to life, however for 55 Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) students this is indeed the case. In 2015, the Town of Penetanguishene’s will celebrate the historic landing of Samuel de Champlain on their community’s shores 400 years ago on August 1, 1615. To commemorate this, and the fact that the town is one of the oldest in Canada west of Quebec City, the town formed a Champlain Penetanguishene committee which will oversee the celebrations.  For inspiration, the committee invited the class of BLA students to re-imagine the town’s waterfront and downtown space as a class project.
