ONTARIO TIRE STEWARDSHIP’s RETHINK TIRES STUDENT DESIGN CHALLENGE

After three months of construction, Artscape Youngplace is thrilled to reveal its new exterior space!
In June of 2016, OTS hosted the 3rd Ontario Tire Stewardship Student Design Challenge at Artscape Youngplace. Thirty-two students from 5 post-secondary schools competed to have their landscape and industrial designs selected to form the redesign of our community entrance, using sustainable products made from recycled tires.
The newly enhanced outdoor area of the winning designs features added seating, more trees, and a large performance space. This space was redesigned for the community to enjoy, and uses creativity in the form of the student designs and recycled rubber materials.
OTS is a not-for-profit organization that oversees the responsible recycling of Ontario’s scrap tires. This site was redesigned for the community to enjoy, and used over 850 recycled tires in its landscape and seating elements.
