Urban Fold

Getting Residents Talking...With Cake!

McGill University planning students have built a cake replica of the neighborhood surrounding the Vendome Metro station in order to get residents to discuss the impacts of the construction and opening of a nearby "superhospital."

"A table was set up next to the cake where passing people could write their hopes for the neighbourhood.

Patricia Philip was one of dozens of commuters who stopped to write what they wanted to see change.

Commuters stopped at a table, set up next to the cake, where passing people could write their hopes for the neighbourhood. 'My concern is that a lot of the area outside of the metro station is so poorly maintained,' Philip said."
