Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


We, two Master of Planning students at SAPL - University of Calgary, are working on an academic project together with the community of Crossroads. We would love to involve you in this exciting process and know your thoughts on our project as well as about Crossroads! There are opportunities to engage through the tools below this description.

Cross of Culture is a design proposal that celebrates the unique backgrounds of people in Calgary. We propose to create lively markets in Mayland Heights and Vista Heights that represent the different cultural backgrounds of people living in the community. We hope that our proposal will help to remove the stigma associated with the city's northeast and is adopted by other communities too.

Check out 'Our Story' and 'Our Studio Journey' - a brief visual description of our studio process through the widgets on the right. You can learn more about our design proposal through:

1. Design Proposal Phase 2: Presentation (April 15, 2020) - https://vimeo.com/408532670

2. The images posted in 'C: Phase 1 Vision Posters' on the right

3. And through our website - https://nextcalgary.ca/Cross-of-Culture.

    Old Dubai

    by Susan, almost 2 years ago

    There is part of Dubai that is tucked away from the glamour and sparkle that you tend to focus on in this city. ‘Deira’ side of the city, where old dhows park along the waterway,is a place where you step back in time. Dozens of old dhows are either coming or going with merchandise to sell or trade from places like India and Iran. This old lifestyle has been part of the Middle Eastern culture for decades. It is so interesting to watch as it’s so different from our modern lives.

    The Asian street markets

    by Aaron, almost 2 years ago

    The night markets in Bali & Bangkok, the electronics and toy markets in Hong Kong & Singapore, the antique markets in Hanoi, the flea markets in Phnom Penh. There is a thrill in visiting these places, venture out for a stroll, the street food experience with some local brew while watching live performances. The concept would work seasonally here, for a whole season, but the anticipation makes it exciting. We travel to open our minds to culture, why not bring that experience home?

    Milan market

    by Colin, almost 2 years ago

    The historic food market in the heart of Milan is a glorious blend of history and cuisine. The wonderful old building is the context, the individual food stalls are nondescript, It is the food that is the hero. A central gathering place for locals and tourists alike, a dynamic mix of culture, food, people, music and architecture - a sensory extravaganza. One is my favorite places.
