Shortlisted for the Knight Cities Challenge!

We are extremely excited that we were recently shortlisted for the Knight Cities Challenge for our idea to create a public living room space on the fringe of the vacant building in honour of Edward Bok, who coined the term "living room". We are trying to consider what a public living room means - how does we use our living rooms? What's their primary purpose? Is it to watch? Is it to share stories? We've got some fun ideas that we think could really add to the neighborhood.

We were one of 126 finalists selected from an applicant pool of 7,000! 

Stay tuned and keep your fingers crossed that we make the final cut!
