“The activation of the natural environment through creative expression motivates the process of learning as a journey of sensory fractalization, sustainability, and appreciation.”

Profile Picture
Hello, everyone! My name is Cristina Pillitteri, and I am a Toronto-based environmental design major and designer. I am grateful for my four-year experience at OCAD University as it empowered me with the knowledge and passion to pursue a career in this field. My design work aspires to create experiential environments that tell stories through colour, light, and community engagement. My thesis, titled "Institutes of Being, turns the McMichael Canadian Art Collection's kilometre-long Humber River Carrying Place Trail attachment into an artistically stimulating natural trail. Overall, the environment seeks opportunities for education, creativity, leisure, and personal growth.
