September 21 and 22
2 days, 2 disciplines, 2 ways to participate – defining our professional roles and uniting to build more equitable, accessible and inspired communities.
Born into an immigrant family of makers, bakers, tailors and artisans, Paul was raised in a community that practiced city building as a collective craft. His family built houses together, fixed cars together and hosted refugee families together.
Paul has built on this understanding of community to address broad social issues through urban design and planning. As the lead of Perkins&Will’s urban design practice in Toronto, his work includes an intentionally diverse portfolio of designs for streetscapes and public spaces, transit stations, neighbourhood master plans and campuses, together with policy and design guidance for transit infrastructure. Each project aims to deliver well-being and delight, while contributing to a larger, regional economy. Applied research forms a key component of Paul’s practice and he and his team have developed a series of analytical tools that serve to inform decision-making with quantifiable data.
Paul enjoys participating in robust discussions and the public discourse about how to shape equitable and resilient cities and is a frequent public speaker at community and industry events.
