“EveryUrban was created in order to help propel the world of development, design and planning towards the future through adopting technologies and strategies to create the best sustainable communities. We aim to empower creativity by offering opportunities to designers from all backgrounds and skillsets around the world.

Design Architects can more closely connect with their core passions and freely create without limiting imagination to a strict agenda while gaining experience and income opportunities to further their careers.”

Pauline and Alex share their intentions and ambitions behind EveryUrban. They put in a lot of hard work to ensure students are well compensated and protected.

We discuss what EveryUrban is all about, their latest project that was completed (a 7 plex in Toronto) and the big project to come (250-280 Unit Development with a compensation of over 55,000 Canadian Dollars for the designer)
