Graham Macdonald

M Sc Pl, BA

Graham received his Master of Planning degree from the University of Toronto, where his research focused on cultural and regional planning in local and international contexts. His thesis research asserts that policies derived from the Creative City approach undervalue local context and social goals. Graham also traveled to Medellín, Colombia to document how state investment in social infrastructure by the municipal government has sparked a social urbanism movement, focusing primarily on the spread of the social urbanism movement thorough Latin America, and how the successes and failures of the movement vary according to context. Following graduation, he interned at LiveWorkLearnPlay, a mixed-use and commercial real estate development consulting firm. During his time at rePlan he has played a key role in a diverse collection of projects involving resettlement planning, social impact assessment, master planning, Official Plan policy development, transportation planning and streetscape design. Graham’s areas of specialization include creative economies, cultural geographies, holistic and regional planning, social impact assessment, transitional economies and economic diversification, international development, and mixed-use and commercial real estate development.
