About Us

How we work

CityStudio Vancouver is an innovation hub, founded together 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, joyful, and inclusive.

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.

Share and Scale Projects

The results are presented at HUBBUB, a celebratory showcase where students, City staff, citizens and elected officials connect to make these solutions permanent.

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.
