Since 2018, I work as an urban designer and advisor for the Chief Government Architect in The Hague. Supported by a multidisciplinary team of designers and experts, the Chief Government Architect provides solicited and unsolicited advice on architecture and urban planning in the
Netherlands. Our country faces a number of complex pressing spatial urban challenges such as increasing segregation, climate change, migration, the transition to renewable energy and the shortage of housing. I am working on both concrete projects with diverse stakeholders and more
abstract and self-initiated studies. In both types of projects, it is important to look at the macro structures of city planning and (micro) practices of inhabitants. By bringing these different scales and perspectives together, new insights and flexible solutions emerge.
