hi, I am angelika. I work in the field of architecture and beyond. Commuting between Berlin, Basel and Zurich I am part of kntxtr and spaceforfuture.org, while working on projects under my own name as well. When I am in Berlin, you can find me on a bike @ride.berlin.
In 2023 I am looking for projects and opportunities that make a difference, have an (even greater) impact, and influence how we live together as a society. I want to be an active part of developing solutions. If the right opportunity arises, I would like to get more actively involved in politics.
My main interest at the moment is in understanding problems such as the global housing crisis on a large scale level. What role do the economic and legal frameworks we are acting within have on the creation of space? How can we implement solutions that are more complex than the binary "expropriation vs. build more"? Is it really necessary to build more?
In the rapidly changing reality of the 21st century, architects urgently need to adapt to a whole new set of demands that they need to fulfill and redefine their job descriptions. In the face of the climate crisis and socio-political and economic shifts, architects must not only adapt how they design but also reflect on their position within a complex network of interests and stakeholders.
Through sharing knowledge and connecting (with) like-minded people I try to foster synergies for transformation. This is how I currently deal with the above-mentioned challenges.
I work independently as well as in larger frameworks of collaborations such askntxtrand spaceforfuture.org. For realising projects of a larger scale I rely on a growing international network of creative minds. I enjoy working with many of them on a regular basis. Collaboration over competition, always.
