I'm currently researching how design methods have been used for public engagement in Canada, and how they could be—specifically focusing on "smart cities" (digital infrastructure, products, and services).

I've categorized notes into three categories—design, engagement, and policy—but the reality is, everything is related. This "archive" of sorts is, and always will be, a work in progress.


In 2018, Infrastructure Canada ran the Smart Cities Challenge, soliciting proposals from municipalities across the country. [***]
