Street Lights is a community of food booths located in Toronto, Canada that strives to upgrade the quality of space for street food vendors while maintaining the charm of being outdoors.

Each booth by itself is small sizing 2.5m x 3.5m only large enough for a small kitchen. Having said that, they are covered with a roof and would have access to grid power through a circuit box fitted at the back, giving a cheaper and more eco-friendly alternative to the propane generators food vendors typically have to use. While these spaces may be thin-walled and humble they serve their purpose in giving vendors some protection from the elements while keeping expenses relatively low, and that may be all someone needs.

Visually, the combination of the glowing lantern shapes and undulating steel roof creates an enchanting scene, inviting people to stop by for a quick bite. These main features act as a wind and rain barrier for both vendors and passing citizens, while creating a sense of community between businesses and drawing public attention.

The piece is about finding the middle point between practicality and luxury: creating new experiences for people in the city while making meaningful spaces for those that need it.
