Expert Facilitation

Citylab offers fresh ideas for design strategy and expert advice on facilitation. Looking for ways to consider landscape that is equitable and culturally progressive? Looking to enter the Canadian market with powerful ideas? Want to reinvent your cultural institution through design? Citylab wants to align with you.


Design Strategy

Citylab has experience leading design juries for international competitions, and knows how to write compelling strategies before communicating them to local politicians, government agencies and news organizations. Through design review peer reviews, Citylab challenge architects, landscape architects and structural engineers to embrace best, most sustainable and sophisticated practice in a collegial, highly productive way.
