Toronto, Ontario, Canada
We have passed the point where half of the world's population is living in cities. If we as planners and designers want to continue to fight urban sprawl, then we need to focus on maintaining a high quality of green infrastructure in our cities and in particular around transit. The public realm, including parks, streets, shared streets and public plazas need to be designed to maximize the human experience. How we animate those spaces, and manage them with a mix of good design and technology will dictate the quality of life in our future cities.

Trevor McIntyre is Regional Director, UK/Ireland & International, which includes IBI Group offices in Europe, the Middle East, and India. He is responsible for the region’s operational results, including financial performance, professional and technical excellence, staff motivation and development, and client satisfaction. He is a Landscape Architect and member of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architecture and the American Society of Landscape Architecture.
