The Future by Design with Shauna Levy

We asked the founder of Toronto's Expo for Design, Innovation & Technology (EDIT) to share her picks for the best of the fest.

Shauna Levy

 
Prosperity for All

“Thought leader and design icon Bruce Mau curated this 2,500-square-foot installation, which is our main exhibit. In it, visitors are presented with huge, haunting black-and-white photographs of conflict zones by Magnum photojournalist Paolo Pellegrin juxtaposed with innovative global design projects, like Daan Roosegaarde’s smog-free tower.”


Feeding the 5,000

“It’s estimated that a billion pounds of food is wasted annually in the GTA. To raise awareness for this problem, environmental organization Feedback Global, working with local groups like Second Harvest, will serve up soup and focaccia made entirely from Toronto food waste just in time for Thanksgiving.”

Free, October 8, 1–4 p.m.

Drone Zone

“The Drone Zone captures our goal of making design thinking accessible. As part of the incredible youth programming, we set up a space for drone demonstrations and races – these are the same kind of drones used to deliver medical supplies to remote areas around the world.”


Mickey Mouse Home of the Future

“In partnership with OCAD University, Disney and Giant Containers, we challenged interior- and industrial-design students to submit sustainable and contemporary designs for the iconic cartoon character’s home of the future. The finalists’ works – including the winning Steamboat Willie-inspired submission – will be on display.”
