Key interests include place-making and participatory approaches, urban cultures and representation, society and smart urbanism. Over the last fewyears she has bought these interests together within child-friendly planning, participatory processes within Living Labs, urban development and management of informal areas, and enabling agendas of context driven planning. She serves as a board member on various civic society associations (Apolitical, Play Scotland) and is also a member of Dutch and EU research evaluation commissions.

His key research interests are sustainability, resilience and circular economy within architecture and cities and he focusses on translating these three concepts into comprehensive design projects. Torsten co-founded and co-directs the Archi Lab, a university-based architectural and urban think tank dedicated to exploring, creating and developing future concepts and scenarios. He obtained his PhD in the Cities Programme at the London School of Economics and Political Science, winning the prestigious RIBA PhD research award in 2015. Torsten offers a unique blend of practical and research expertise. He has more than ten years of experience in designing and realising a wide range of outstanding architectural projects for leading design practices, amongst others for Rem Koolhaas/Office for Metropolitan Architecture as architect and project leader on projects in the USA, Germany, South Korea and China.
