Visualizing Policy, Density, and Population Distribution


Being a relatively new city that has grown drastically over recent decades and is entrenched in modern planning practices, we can clearly see and experience “beliefs made physical” and its effects. These can be felt at all levels of the built environment – from the location and style of individual buildings (such as City Hall) to large-scale urban patterns.

This graphic speaks to the latter, compiling several census-based maps, graphs, and tables to explicitly show the direct ties between specific  policies, neighbourhood densities and population distribution.

An excellent infographic that aids visualizing the pattern and trends of policies on urban density and population distribution.
