We are thrilled about our continuously evolving lab!

Drude will continue working with us, but in a new role as an Industrial PhD student! We are very excited to have her onboard and to have a close collaboration with Gehl Architects through her project.

In the last decades, Gehl Architects has had a direct role in defining innovation in cities, offering methods for evaluating city quality, designing to encourage active use of outdoor space, and discussing the ways our sensory abilities affect our use of space.

Building on Gehl’s expertise within urban planning and the SSD labs research on Service Design and Co-design in urban environments, the PhD project will look at how to enhance citizen participation in public-private constellations for city-making. Ultimately, to support the creation of urban environments that are equally based on professional know-how and democratic principles.
