Through the Visionary (re)Generation competition, the University of Manitoba invited the world’s most accomplished urban thinkers to reimagine the university’s Fort Garry campus. Forty-five teams representing 17 countries took on the challenge and this exhibition showcases their exceptional work.
The creativity and ingenuity of the winning concept provides us with a starting point from which we will move from vision to reality. Together with our partners the university will further transform our campus and community into a place that enriches the lives of all who learn here, work here, play here and call it home.
