URBANISM // .stadt.raum.spiel
With a background in China Studies (B.A. Leipzig University) and Urban Studies+Design (M.Sc. Bauhaus University Weimar and M.Eng. Tongji University Shanghai), I am working at the interplay of educational, scientific and design-related aspects of our contemporary urbanizing world. Inspired by Henri Lefebvre’s writings on space and the urban, I am interested in the global phenomenon of urbanization and its local characteristics and potentialities.

urban research + design + games

There are many ways to interpret and communicate contemporary processes of urbanization as well as the possible futures that are ‘inscribed’ in the present, I therefore believe in the necessity for trans-disciplinarity and self-reflexivity, both in personal and professional contexts. In my individual work as well as in collaborations, creative and often game-based approaches mark focal points in approaching challenges and contexts.    

A few samples of my recent projects can be found below. For my recent work with Duygu Kaban, Jeremy Pine and Gaia Agositini follow the link to www.spacedigger.org. 

Also check www.mikromakro.net for my work with Mikromakro e.V. on playful participation.

I am based in Berlin-Neukölln, Germany.
