Imagining Toronto’s Subways in 2030

Toronto 2030 by Dieter Janssen (small version)

As a child I drew on road maps, adding streets, freeways, even whole cities where none would ever exist. Dieter Janssen’s map of an imagined Toronto subway network in 2030 has a more serious purpose: he hopes his map, which dramatically extends the existing lines and adds another four, will stimulate discussion of about the future of Toronto’s transit system. Torontoist has a full-sized version of the map and an interview with Janssen, an architecture professor at the University of Toronto. Incidentally, this is not the first imagined future Toronto subway map; I think Torontonians want more TTC. Thanks to Richard Akerman for the link.
