It all started when...

Keep Kingston Human Scale (KKHS) is a personal website which aims at raising awareness of the importance of good planning and urban design in cities. Recently, several high-rises projects have been proposed right in the historical centre of Kingston, Ontario. This controversial and highly political topic of building skyscrapers in a low-rise setting is not uncommon and multiple cities face the same debate.

In the effort of debunking several myths, to start a productive discussion among community members, and to have a more informed opinion, a website platform was created. On KKHS, I wrote in-depth several arguments on the impacts of these high-rises and most of these arguments relate to urban design.
