A Day in the Life

Toronto, CA

A giant dynamic model depicts the daily life in a city of the future.


Toronto Tomorrow

In 2018, Daily contributed to the creation of 307, Sidewalk Toronto’s workspace for the urban planning of Quayside, a new neighborhood in Toronto. In 2019, the result of their 18 months of research and public consultations was published in “Toronto Tomorrow”, a 2000-page book. To make this document more accessible to the public, Daily created a large-scale model showcasing major innovations.

How it Works

Eighteen screens integrated into a wooden structure present a series of futuristic urban infrastructure, such as rain water collection, its treatment, waste management, energy solutions, etc, with a focus on people living within them. The structure echoes Sidewalk Toronto’s mass timber buildings. More than 300 tiny human figurines live throughout all the model, illustrating all the various lifestyles possible in this future city.
