Hi, my name is angelika hinterbrandner. 
I am a trained architect, working in a variety of roles, formats, and collaborations within and beyond the field of architecture. I deeply care about architecture and the built environment. Nevertheless, you won't find anything built here. 

In my research, I am currently focusing on the intersection of the political economy of housing and spatial qualities of space. Furthermore, I am investigating new professional realities and building processes of architects responding to the climate crisis.

Since 2019, I've been part of @kntxtr. As of 2021, I'm researching and teaching at ETH Zurich. Currently at the Chair for Architecture Heritage & Sustainability Prof. Mariam Issoufou. In 2022, I co-initiated with five other individuals from the fields of architecture, urbanism, research, and communication. The initiative advocates for affordable, sustainable, and equitable access to housing for the 99%.

In my work, I strive to create content that is accessible and engaging, and that can inspire and inform individuals and organizations alike. I'm passionate about learning and knowledge-sharing, whether through workshops, presentations, or other interactive formats.

I see myself as a mediator, working to bridge gaps between different groups and communities. I believe that bringing people together to share ideas and collaborate on projects is crucial to fostering positive change. Ultimately, my goal is to create spaces and structures that enable people to learn, connect, and work together toward a better future for everyone.
