Our Team
Kevin King Associate, Urban Planner MCIP, RPP LEED® AP Vancouver

Kevin’s 15+ years of planning and urban design experience has resulted in award-winning projects in Canada and the United States. His work centers on design at the city and district scale, including master plans, design guidelines, complex rezonings, and neighbourhood plans. Kevin’s creative approach to project work and his philosophy that culture shapes cities mean that he actively seeks to link community and place to design and physical form. Collaborators appreciate his commitment to broad participation in the design process. Kevin’s curiosity to engage with practitioners outside traditional planning and urban design boundaries leads to inspiring idea-driven design solutions. Over the years, he has served as an adjunct professor at UBC SALA’s Masters of Urban Design Program, been a panelist for Spacing Magazine, and provided Urban Design commentary on CBC Radio. Kevin is a Registered Professional Planner and Member of the Canadian Institute of Planners.

What’s your favourite DIALOG initiative?
GLOO (an internal quarterly publication), because it recognizes that people, perspective, and culture create ideas. DIALOG has an amazing culture of exchange and curiosity and GLOO helps to reveal this and capture some of the energy that is just part of our day to day creative exchange.

What’s one skill (outside of work) that you’d like to learn?
I’m learning Dutch which doesn’t seem to help much when I travel to France each summer.

Where’s your happy place?
