TODERIAN UrbanWORKS (TUW) is an award-winning Vancouver-based consultancy providing city planning, urban design, transportation, municipal innovation and advanced urbanism services across Canada and globally. Launched early in 2012 by former Vancouver Chief Planner Brent Toderian, TUW builds on Brent’s 30+ years of unique public and private sector experience in Vancouver, across Canada, and around the world, as well as his reputation as a leading international voice and thought-leader on cities, city-building + urbanism.
TUW’s work combines game-changing 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, livable, innovative and vibrant. TUW has a unique ability to understand and work with the needs and aspirations of cities; to “read the moment” a specific 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 leadership, culture change and capacity-building where it’s needed.
TUW’s work doesn’t sit on a shelf collecting dust. Our work is city-changing.
