TODERIAN UrbanWORKS is an award-winning Vancouver-based consultancy providing city planning, urban design, municipal innovation and advanced urbanism services across Canada and globally. Launched early in 2012 by former Vancouver Director of City Planning Brent Toderian, TUW builds on Brent’s unique public and private sector work in Vancouver and across Canada, as well as his experience as a leading international voice in city-building + urbanism.
TUW’s work combines creativity and innovation with the kind of pragmatic results-focus that actually changes cities for the better. Our work isn’t about business-as-usual – it’s about making our cities and communities more successful, resilient, sustainable and vibrant. TUW has a unique ability to understand and work with the needs and aspirations of cities; to “read the moment” a city finds itself in, and advise and assist in how to make the most of that moment, with fresh thinking, creativity, and a drive for real results. This attention to the “will and skill” required for creative city-making not only supports planning and design, but also supports culture change and capacity-building where it’s needed.
TUW’s work doesn’t sit on a shelf collecting dust. Our work, our collaborations, are city-changing.
