FRONTlines_10 : RiverCity2050 - Session 4

Wednesday, February 24. 2016

Acting as binding threads, the Red and Assiniboine Rivers played a vital role in our regions' development. So why did we turn our backs on them? Can our city's future development be informed by our river systems? StorefrontMB and the Winnipeg Free Press called upon the design community and their responses are in.
