Brian Horton

Associate, Senior Urban Planner

Brian holds a Master of Planning from Dalhousie University and a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in Political Science and Economics. He is a member of the Canadian Institute of Planners, the Alberta Professional Planners Institute and the Urban Land Institute. Brian sits on the City of Calgary Urban Design Review Panel (UDRP).

Brian is an accomplished city planner and urban designer with considerable experience working on innovative planning and design projects in Canada and overseas. He spent the early part of his career in London, UK  working on projects at all scales ranging from regional strategies, new village masterplans, inner-city urban design strategies and detailed streetscape designs. Brian believes that the careful attention to detail at all scales is crucial to delivering projects that result in the creation of places and spaces that are a positive contribution to the urban fabric and will be appreciated and used over time. On all the projects he is involved with, Brian combines his knowledge of market fundamentals, policy environment, urban design, the approval process and stakeholder negotiation to facilitate the approval of complex projects, particularly in the context of urban intensification.
