The Department of Unusual Certainities a Toronto-based research and design collective working at the interstices of urban design, planning, public art, spatial research and mapping. DoUC operate under the mandate of expanding the conception of what urban design is and what it can achieve. The Department’s work is informed by one guiding philosophy – that the city is the physical manifestation of a long sequence of unusual certainties, each one simultaneously more unusual and yet more certain than its predecessor. The Department publishes, lectures, and exhibits often, and their work has been featured in Mark Magazine, Canadian Architect, MONU magazine, Conditions, On Site Review and Spacing Magazine.
DoUC are the new Innovators in Residence at the DX and the group will be collaborating with the DX team for the first time for Play > Nation.
