Dan at a Young Age

Dan Barham is an urban planning student with a bachelor of arts in political science from Acadia University. He has loved cities and buildings since he was a child.

Recently, he decided to explore his love of all things cities and urban by creating a blog. Thus Urban Neighbourhood was born. Currently, he is living in Montreal and rounding out his studies in planning before pursuing a masters.


A Canadian living abroad in North East Asia for the past five years with extensive travel under his belt fin is always ready to offer a point of view on urban life as he sees it.

He is currently working on a tourist map for fun, and is watching the city he lives in be remade into a Korean vision of high density dreams.

He has secretly begun construction what will become the world’s largest and ugliest hotel, in his own bedroom, hoping to move it to a building site soon.

Hi. I came across your site. How does one contribute? I am an Architect in Melbourne Australia. I wrote an article about my trip to South Africa in July this year where I talked about urban sprawl, air pollution, racial segregation, etc and their recently launched Green Building Council.
