Hannes Langguth, architect and urban researcher, works at the intersection of critical urban theory, urban ethnography, and urban-regional planning and governance. Focusing on urban peripheries and small-town contexts in Europe and China, he is interested in exploring the interrelation between the built environment and globally entangled climate, spatial, and social transformation. In particular, his work addresses large-scale Chinese ‘green’ infrastructure investments, urban-regional sustainability policy, and participatory approaches to urban-regional visioning, planning, and design. Prior to his position at the research training group ‘Urban future-making’, he worked as a lecturer, researcher, and project coordinator at the Department of International Urbanism and Design (Habitat Unit) at the TU Berlin. Additionally, he has held several visiting research fellowships at international research institutions, such as the National University of Singapore (NUS), the University of Amsterdam, Tongji University in Shanghai, and Columbia University in New York. Hannes studied architecture and urban planning at the TU Braunschweig and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.
