climate design & urban activism

[what is climate design?]


The climate crisis calls for new methods of holistically designing our built environment. As a cross-disciplinary field, Climate Design combines knowledge and methods from architecture, engineering, geography and art.


Trained as an architect at the State Academy of Arts and Design in Stuttgart and experienced at Transsolar KlimaEngineering, I design concepts and strategies for sustainable spacial developments at all scales. Projects include

urban planning strategies,
Mumbai Metabolism
development of building simulation software
Architectrual Acoustics
and installative works.

Currently I am working together with Beatrice Bucher and Yannik Plachtzik on the urban strategic and performative project

[why should we all be urban activists?]


We need a fundamental structural rethinking in order to preserve our livelihoods. Through public discourse, critique, and spatial interventions, we can open up new perspectives that raise awareness of the urgent need for change and propose new narratives of living together.


As part of the interdisciplinary group Stadtlücken e.V. I create projects on the edge between urban development, art and activism within and around public space in Stuttgart and beyond. In 2019 I held a
