Designing solutions to a city's gripes.

Published on Jul 12, 2011

Editor's Pick

Toronto-based Bruce Mau Design is taking the complaints and gripes that people have about its native city and doing something about it.

Last year, the Toronto Complaints Choir collected over 1000 grievances, gripes, and annoyances from people across the city and transformed them into a song. This month Bruce Mau Design is opening a pop-up studio in Toronto's Propeller Centre, which will design solutions in response to the complaints. A book of their ideas will also be created, and then given away throughout Toronto. The studio will be open from July 20-31, and the Toronto Complaints Choir will be giving a special performance there on July 28.
