Urban Design team grows
We are please to announce that Ana Santini has joined our Altrincham studio as an Urban Designer.
Ana previously worked as a Project Manager at Creative Roots Studio, a small office for collaborative city-making based in Copenhagen, where she co-ordinated and managed citizen involvement in urban design projects within communities undergoing major change. Amongst their work the Blågårdsvision created a vision for a social housing district in the middle of the popular Nørrebro neighbourhood. The Plant et frø (Plant a seed) initiative created a temporary meeting space as an initial project with the wider goal that residents continue to develop the place themselves.
This emphasis on community-focused design across diverse cultures, interests and social backgrounds brings invaluable insights and an emerging skill set within the practice relating to the Scandinavian approach to communities.
Ana also gained teaching experience in both theoretical and studio Master-level courses at the University of Copenhagen.
Welcome to the team.
