PDA for Edmond Place is an exploration in community-engaged design. In early 2009, PDA partnered with Edmond Place — a ground-breaking new affordable housing development in Parkdale — to find alternatives to the often institutional furnishing options typical of subsidized housing. The result: Local designers, businesses and community members have come together to design and build over 60 pieces of furniture and accessories to be donated to the project. The exhibition celebrates the countless hours and valuable skills that have gone into this first PDA of its kind.
