Adrian Blackwell is an artist and urban and architectural designer, whose work focuses on the spaces and forces of uneven development produced through processes of Postfordist urbanisation. Since 1996 his art projects have altered existing spaces to encourage common uses. Public Water Closet (1998) and How to Open a Car Like a Book (1999) open private enclosures to the city. Light Net (2004), Car Pool (2005) and Model for a Public Space (2000, 2006) produce new locations for collective action and public discourse. In 2005 Blackwell co-edited Unboxed: Engagements in Social Space and in 2007 he won the competition to redesign Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square. He is an assistant professor of Architecture and Urban Design at the University of Toronto.
