Background and activities
I am a trained architect (SAR/MSA) with working experience from urban planning as well as interior design and housing. My PhD research (Department of Urban Design and Planning) focuses on placemaking in public space based on active user involvement. Through case studies in San Francisco and Berlin, and action research in Malmö I am investigating the role of place attachment for the "insiders" of a place. I am also interested in what kind of design / physical structures and project organizations that allow for active user involvement.
