dezeen: Partisans to turn Canadian town into “City of the Future”

Friday January 15, 2021

Architecture studio Partisans has unveiled plans to transform a Canadian town into a smart community, combining fibre optics, autonomous vehicles and drone ports within a rural setting.

The Toronto firm has developed the proposal for Innisfil, Canada, a primarily agrarian and residential town 60 kilometres north of Toronto.

Called The Orbit, the proposal aims to develop it into “the city of the future” with a host of new technologies, while also maintaining the existing agriculture and lush setting.
