Nationality: Danish
Institution: Aalborg University

As a student of Architecture and Design at Aalborg University I have experience with both group-based work and solo projects. The interdisciplinary methodology inherent to the Aalborg PBLmodel has provided me a variety of tools, with which I approach the development of design solutions.
My key interest involves the relationship between people and their environment in a phenomenological and philosophical perspective. I believe that the design of any object reflects not only a set of basic needs to accommodate, but also the way, in which we understand ourselves and our relation with the surrounding world.

Motivation for participation:
Participating in this international collaboration enables the exchange of experiences, knowledge and views on a given subject, culminating in a creative output that reflects all of the above.
My motivation stems from an interest in the process by which this exchange occurs.
