Associate, Urban Designer
Eunice Wong (they/them) is an award-winning planner, urban designer, and associate from Toronto, Canada in Perkins&Will’s Ontario studio. They work at the intersection of people and place, advocating for breaking the status quo in city building and humanizing the design process. Their professional work spans from strategic policy planning to built-form testing and streetscape design, with a focused interest in both social and physical resilience. Eunice has also co-led a firm-wide research initiative called “Living Urban Districts”, which digs into how public health and wellbeing can be better integrated into the planning process, and why the ability to respond to social inequities should be a critical part of every planners’ toolkit. Eunice is also a planning instructor at Toronto Metropolitan University, a member of the studio’s JEDI (Justice Equity Diversity and Inclusion) Committee, the Innovation Incubator champion for the Ontario studio, and co-host of the Inhabit Podcast, a show about the power of community-powered design (available wherever you get your podcasts!).
