Curriculum Vitae

Lukas Pappert has been a researcher at Habitat Unit since August 2022. He is part of the Urban Rural Assembly (BMBF, 2019-2024) research team, looking at inclusive transformationto sustainability processes at urban-rural interfaces in China and Germany. With an integrated spatial research approach, Lukas explores interdisciplinary interrelations within the URA project. Furthermore, he applies and critically revises the “Raumbild method” as a cooperative strategic planning tool. His research aims to further develop and sharpen transdisciplinary methods and tools, and transfer them to international planning and stakeholder contexts.

Lukas studied Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Kassel, and Urban Design at Technical University Berlin. Before joining Habitat Unit, he was employed as a project leader at Urban Catalyst GmbH in Berlin, where he mainly worked in the fields of urban development strategies, participation processes and urban research.
