Department of Unusual Certainties empowers transformation through curiosity and design

About

Welcome to Department of Unusual Certainties

DoUC's objective is to use thoughtful, collaborative and research-driven design to empower transformation.

We explore how the world was, is and how it could be, and share those stories.

We are directed by curiosity, information and the human experience.


In 2010, DoUC started as a result of a shared need to ask questions about our everyday existence. This curiosity continues to grow and has manifested over the years through projects that traverse urban design, social engagement, strategic planning, user interaction, education, cartography and public art.


As the studio has evolved over the past decade, this philosophy has become deeply rooted in our work, leading us to focus on using curiosity to shape how we think through the design of each process.


We’ve always blurred the lines between conventional practices, approaching our work by gathering insights into human experience as well as considering relevant data and research, using both information sets to devise interesting, effective and complete outcomes.

City of Experiences

As we enter the 21st century, the experience of life in the contemporary has surpassed the classic development models of the 20th century. We are living in the 50/50 (some might say 70/30), a fluid presence between the virtual and physical worlds. This is shaping alternative modes for how we exist, providing us with the potential to manage and create multiple realities and stories which influence how we want to be seen and understood. But how do we in turn adapt and understand ideologies, structures and systems in this new way of living, modifying the definition of cities to encompass the experiences of the invisible cities that extend beyond physical infrastructure?

Pioneering Green Communities

The past two years of work with ReWilding and many of the communities around Lake Simcoe has been a huge opportunity for growth at DoUC. We’ve had the chance to contribute to exciting projects and activities, meet so many amazing people and most importantly, see the impact our designs have had on the community. These experiences have been rewarding for us in many ways, but it’s always nice (and humbling!) to receive some outside recognition.
