I am a postgraduate urban design student, highly interested in the traditional urban form and its integration of all areas of urban life. Although we will never be able to return to a pre-industrial cityscape with its valued and appreciated qualities, I believe, with the clear understanding of the current reality of market and society and of the past of our cities this integration is reachable on another level. During my design work, I try to rethink the existing urban form and transform it to the current needs of our cities.
During my education and employment I worked on multiple levels from large-scale strategic urban design projects over master planning to the individual configuration of blocks, buildings and open spaces.
