“I’m incredibly proud of what these students have done and that this work will stand as a testament to the tremendous wealth of talent we have in Toronto,” said Mayor Miller. “Their designs are not only representative of the general excellence coming out of OCAD, they will make a real and positive difference in beautifying the city’s public realm.”

“Part of our university’s design philosophy is to create objects, environments and experiences that nurture community, satisfy needs and empower individuals — and I think the imaginative and innovative designs produced by our students embody all of these qualities,” said OCAD President Sara Diamond. “Through community-based competitions like the Gateway Bike Stand Challenge, OCAD students are contributing to the enhancement of Toronto’s streetscape.”
