Furbaniture is the result of a collaboration between the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Environmental Design and the City of Calgary, who both hosted the Walk21 Conference in 2017.  Furbaniture is an example of tactical urbanism, a low-cost way to change the built environment at a street level, intended to change how a street operates, feels, and serves the neighbourhood.
