“In its pilot year, I went into Maximum City with the vague notion that I was unsatisfied with how my city was run and that I wanted to do something about it, and left the program not only excited by the knowledge that I could affect tangible change but also by the prospect of pursuing architecture and planning for the rest of my life.” —Duncan Steele, Cornell Architecture 2019

Maximum City began in 2011 as a summer pilot program for high school students interested in urban design and architecture. It has since grown into a leading educational social enterprise with over 200 hours of expert-generated content in a range of urban topics from sustainability to smart technology. The programs and curriculum have reached thousands of students in southern Ontario and worldwide through summer camps, videos, curriculum units, and lesson plans taught in various subject areas at the middle, high school, and university levels. At Maximum City, students have their eyes on our urban future as they use the city as their classroom to collaborate on real-world citybuilding challenges at a local and global level.
