In 2006, Brent Toderian was appointed the City of Vancouver’s Director of City Planning, succeeding celebrated Co-Directors Larry Beasley and Dr. Ann McAfee. His broad mandate involves current planning, including the many projects related to the 2010 Winter Olympics, and visioning/CityPlans, including the new “EcoDensity” citywide initiative currently being discussed with the Vancouver community. EcoDensity is based on the premise that strategically located, sustainably designed density can reduce the City’s ecological footprint while making Vancouver more sustainable, livable and affordable. Since arriving, Brent’s been encouraging candid, city-wide dialogue around an evolving urbanism, with bold opportunities around sustainability, creativity, and architectural risk taking.
