About me

Lena Knappers graduated in 2017 from the Urbanism department at the Delft University of Technology. She currently works as an urban designer and advisor at the Chief Government Architect in The Hague and on a research- and design project supported by a talent development grant from the Creative Industries Fund NL. The rationale of this project is to connect ethnography and migration studies as a frame to analyse and understand complex phenomena brought to bear by global mobility, with urbanism as a tool to offer spatial interventions, to interfere with spatial design. For the cities Athens, Brussels and Amsterdam, Knappers makes a comparative analysis and designs a number of interventions.
