Cities are better
when we build
them together.

About Us

CityStudio Vancouver is an innovation hub, founded with SFU and the City of Vancouver, where city staff, students, faculty and community work together to design experimental projects that make Vancouver more sustainable, liveable and joyful.

Convene City Staff

Once a year we convene City staff to identify and develop project concepts that further Vancouver's strategic aims.

Design Projects Together

As part of their coursework, students work together with City staff to co-create pilot projects for the benefit of community.

Match Projects with Schools

We match these projects with courses at our partner schools, ensuring a strong fit between city needs and faculty expertise.

Launch Projects in Public

Final projects are launched by students as experiments and pilot projects in the community to test what works.

CityStudio works with cities, post-secondary schools, faculty and students. Learn more about our partners and how to collaborate on a project.
