Curriculum Vitae

Ania Wilk-Pham has been a member of Habitat Unit Team since 2015. She is working at the interface of integrated planning and architecture. Her research interests combine the areas of extended urbanisation, community-based planning and co-production, engaged teaching and community engagement in architectural education. Ania studied architecture and urban planning at the Technical University in Berlin, Leibniz Universität in Hannover and Technical University of Poznan.

Ania is part of the Polyurbwater (BMBF, 2019-2024) research team, looking at polycentric approaches to the management of urban water resources in South-East Asia - a localization of the sustainability targets of agenda 2030 and the New Urban Agenda at the city/municipality level. In this project, Habiatat Unit will develop integrated and participatory urban development approaches. The scientific monitoring of the real laboratories will be carried out from a planning and urban research perspective with the aim of translating the concrete experiences into strategic approaches, instruments and tools that can be transferred to other districts or municipalities (upscaling).

Since 2016 Ania is also conducting research on Design-Build projects as a teaching method in architecutre. She is investigating the field of public interest design and the community engagement in the design and construction process.
