Designing Gould Street is an open, international student design competition to propose an innovative, imaginative series of spaces that will transform the existing Gould Street corridor of Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada into a pedestrianized environment. The Competition is held in conjunction with the 8th annual international pedestrian conference, Walk21 Toronto 2007 - "Putting Pedestrians First". The conference is co - hosted this year by the City of Toronto and Green Communities Canada and will run from October 01 - 04, 2007.

For the last two years, there has been much discussion about how Gould Street should be rethought to make it a safer and more student - friendly. In fact there has been an active voice asking for a pedestrian - plan for Gould Street in the student papers for over a decade. 

This ideas competition will serve to add to the energy growing around the campus. The reconsideration of how a North American urban street encourages more pedestrian - focused activity is part of the wider movement of pedestrianizing roads and streets, not only in North America but in the rest of the world.
