Local design team pitches 'healing' plan as part of Sudbury 2050 Urban Design Ideas Competition

'Mashkikike: A Story of Healing' design plan now among the finalists in architecture school's competition

The competition, launched by the McEwen School of Architecture in May, asked competitors from around the globe to think creatively about Greater Sudbury's urban core.

One of the teams in the finals is called Mashkikike: A Story of Healing. Mashkikike is an Ojibwe or Anishnaabemowin word that means "to make medicine." Members worked with the Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury and drew heavily from community input.
