Reasearch / work
My focus in current work is on developing theory and methods to increase the interplay between local and regional planning. The objective is thereby to support the design practice in urban planning to manage challenges caused by an uneven geographical development and to include a broader field of resources and actors in the planning process. A greater plurality is intended to improve the possibility to manage change over time and balance a sustainable development.
