Understanding a Career in Urban Design

Curious About a Career in Urban Design?

APA's Urban Design and Preservation Division created a short video where three urban designers share insights and career advice if you want to pursue a career in urban design. Hear from:

  • Jason Beske, senior urban designer at Stantec Urban Places
  • Jeffrey Shumaker, former chief urban designer of New York City
  • Ifeoma Ebo, urban designer/planning strategist

The video was produced by Katelyn Huang, Cal Poly-Pomona planning student and the division's 2022 student scholar.
