Architect, urban designer, futurist, and pioneer in the field of urban resilience and symbiotic city planning, Craig Applegath is a Principal at DIALOG, and a passionate advocate for developing thoughtful planning and design solutions that make sense in a world now challenged by climate change. Since completing studies at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University with a Master of Architecture in Urban Design, Craig has garnered a significant reputation for successfully leading complex, sustainably designed planning and design projects, and is internationally known for his advocacy and thought leadership in environmentally responsive design, and urban resilience.
In addition to his project and practice responsibilities, Craig is active within his industry and the community at large, and writes and lectures on green building design and symbiotic city design in Canada and internationally. He was a founding Board Member of Sustainable Buildings Canada and served as the President of the Ontario Association of Architects. These, and other accomplishments, led to Craig being named a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. His lecture introduces the idea of Symbiotic City, the next stage of evolution beyond resilient cities.
