Actions: What You Can Do With the City presents 99 actions that instigate positive change in contemporary cities around the world. Seemingly common activities such as walking, playing, recycling and gardening are pushed beyond their usual definition by the international architects, artists and collectives featured in the exhibition. Their experimental interactions with the urban environment show the potential influence personal involvement can have in shaping the city and challenge fellow residents to participate.

- November 12: Srdjan Jovanovic Weiss
The exhibition is organized by the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montréal.
