Mentors 

 

Amelie Rost (HCU)

Amelie studied Architecture with main focus on urban design at University of Applied Sciences. Her research concerns possibilities for inner development of cities through floating architecture. She also has been teaching urban planning, architecture and interdisciplinary design. 

 

 

Hanna Obracht-Prondzynska (GUT)

Hanna is working on spatial development planning for the Pomeranian region and the Gdansk metropolis, as a regional planner and GIS analyst. She teaches urban design and regional planning at GUT, while coordinating the Mentor & Student Research Lab program within the ISOCARP (The International Society of City and Regional Planners). Currently, her objectives focus on the impact of metropolitan growth on the small towns in the region.

 

 

Jan Suchorzewski (GUT)

Jan is a PhD student at GdaƄsk University of Technology in Civil Engineering. His research is focused on multi-scale experimental study of concrete properties. Moreover he runs numerical studies on micro-mechanics influence on macroscopic material fracture. In addition, Jan is involved in infrastructure, planning and participation projects in Gdynia Downtown district council.

 

Kai Schramme (HCU)

Kai studied Architectural Engineering and works as PhD researcher and lecturer at the HafenCity University Hamburg. In research, he focuses on implementation of digital and parametric methods in interdisciplinary design processes with a focus on offering structural competences early in the scope of design

 

Karl Eriksson (Chalmers)

Karl's research focuses on housing and transformation of the contemporary European city, and how the process of regeneration affects cities. He also works for Karakusevic Carson Architects for social housing projects in London. 

 

Kasia Urbanowicz (GUT)

Kasia studied architecture at GUT, where she now continues her research about new media and interactive technologies in public spaces and their possible role in the city renewal processes. She teaches at the design studio, dealing with projects in abstract spatial forms, designing architecture and city spaces.

 

Marieke Behne (HCU)

Marieke is working in an architectural office focused on redevelopment and is involved in a project which conversed an office to a residential building. She was involved in teaching building and conceptual design in architecture (Prof. Klaus Sill, Hafencity University) and is now part of the interdisciplinary research and teaching programme Urban Design.

  

Markus Hudert (Aalto)

Markus' research focuses on material & assembly driven design strategies, and experimental & innovative timber structures, bridging the gap between architectural & structural design, and digital & analog design environments. He recently co-taught design studios on advanced performative building envelopes and timber construction. 

 

Martin Kohler (HCU)

Martin studied Landscape Architecture at Hanover’s Leibniz University and South Australian University in Adelaide. His research focuses on open urban spaces in a comparative international perspective and the use and potential of neglected spaces in urban agglomerations. He teaches disciplinary and interdisciplinary in the fields of urban planning, urban design as well as “urban photography”. His special interest lies in urban processes and informal planning.

 

Mathilde Landgren (DTU)

Mathilde is an industrial PhD working partly at DTU and at the architectural office JJW Architects in Copenhagen. Her background is MSc in Architectural Engineering specialized within Energy Design and now she aims to develop a method for Integrated Sustainable Design through the PhD. In the PhD, she emphasizes the interdisciplinary design teams to base their design decisions upon knowledge about the sustainability palette of tools concerning energy performance, indoor climate, daylight, life cycle assessment and life cycle costing.

 

Viktorija Prilenska (TUT)

Viktorija Prilenska is an architect and urban planner with practical and academic experience in both fields. Currently she is a Doctoral candidate at Tallinn University of Technology, researching the application of games for public engagement in urban and regional planning.

 

Emanuele NaboniEmanuele Naboni (HCU)

Emanuele is Associate Professor at the Institute of Technology of the KADK. He teaches and researches in the field of Architectural Technology and Environmental Sustainable Design. In 2007, he was awarded his PhD in Building Science at the Politecnico di Milano and University of California, LBNL with a thesis focused on the simulation of sustainable architecture.
