Veronika Kovacsova

Freelance urban designer & researcher

Born in now non-existing Czechoslovakia, I'm an urban design student (Master programme) at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture and an urban sociology graduate /MSc., University of Amsterdam).

Besides my academic education, I have three years of experience working as an urban designer at renowned offices in Amsterdam.

My interests lie in sustainability (how can we design a climate neutral and develop a socially engaged city?) and temporality (designing with time / developing strategic phasing).

Currently, I'm working on my graduation project dealing with the topic of urban climate change (researching the effects of climate change in cities and their surrounding regions, investigating and identifying measurements that can be taken to protect and improve the microclimate in cities).
