Key Qualifications Susana Alves (1970) is an Environmental Psychologist whose research examines how landscapes can be used to promote people’s health and psychological well-being. Dr. Alves’ research has focused on older adults, retired migrants, and urban residents. Her research has addressed quality-of-life issues in neighbourhood outdoor spaces and institutional settings for the elderly where she has assessed older adults’ landscape perceptions and activities. She has engaged in cross-cultural studies and also in a large longitudinal study to examine the impact of pedestrian-friendly streets in the health and well-being of British elderly. She has worked on the EU project PLUREL, part of 6th framework to examine migration, aging and ethnicity and their impact on land use in Europe.

Dr. Alves promotes a culturally sensitive approach to design with a concern to disseminate research findings to academic and non-academic audiences. A strong component of her work is the use of a multi-method approach to research by combining quantitative and qualitative procedures. Also, she adds visually-based tools and forms of communication (web sites, blogs, and booklets) to her work in order to provide information that is easily translated to design. Her purpose is to use research on Landscape for Ageing to support design of age-friendly environments, and guide environmental interventions towards health promotion, cultural diversity, and sustainable tourism practices.

She has engaged in research and teaching activities in environmental psychology, landscape architecture, and architecture in Brazil, US, UK, and Turkey. She is currently working as an assistant professor in the department of Architecture at the Okan Üniversitesi in Istanbul, Turkey. Current research activities involve: evaluation of residential quality of residents in Istanbul; analysis of landscape affordances, and urban agriculture in Istanbul. Dr. Alves co-chairs the Nature & Ecology Network at the Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) and edited a special issue on Ageing and Environment for Psyecology.

Maria Amelia Del Vecchio

I was born in Caserta in 1990 and live in Casoria, a city near Naples.

I attended the artistic high school where I have learnt some metod of painting and also sculpture and architectural draw. I was happy with my choice, because I had good teachers who taught me to make copies of famous paintings by Caravaggio with the technique of pointillism, but I’ve also started doing architectural projects like that of a church.

In 2009 I started my university career. In the Department of Architecture of the Second University of Naples I have had the opportunity to confirm my passion for architecture, thanks to many good teachers. In 2012 I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Architectural Science and Engineering by a vote of 108. In recent years I have participated in some competitions on the architectural and urban design.

In April of 2013 I have inscribed for the bachelor in Architecture – Interior Design and for Autonomy, a master degree in english. I decided to attend a graduate program in english because it is a good opportunity and that one day I would go abroad to work.

Mareike Klüver

After I finished school I spent a year in Australia and when I returned I decided to study at the University of Siegen. During my BA study course of Literary, Cultural, and Media Studies I discovered that I want to work in the fields of film architecture. My main interest, however, is stage design, so I decided to expand my education with further studies in Architecture at the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne.

In my first study I took courses in film and script analysis and learned about remakes and different directors. Additionally, I took part in several theatre productions where I was responsible for the stage design. My BA thesis dealt with the evolution of animated film.

With my studies in Architecture I am broadening my knowledge of model making, structural analysis, designing and constructing. As I am a very dedicated student I was already offered a job as a teaching assistant for the subjects Design and Construction in my third term and function as a contact person for new students. During my BA my interest in planning, designing and constructing models has increased, so I continued my architectural studies with a special focus on Corporate Architecture.


Christina Koschowsky

Student in the Masterprogramme of Cologne Institute for Architectural Design / CIAD with specialization in Corporate Architecture. Student assistant / Tutor in artistic studies at the Laboratory for Experimental Art & Architecture / L E A R .

Graduated with a Bachelor degree in both Architecture and Interior Design at Detmold school of Architecture and Interior Design. These studies provided a wide range of contents as well as a main architectural ideology and target: Human Centered Design.

Rooms and their varying effects on people fascinate her. Cities, buildings and interiors have influence on health, feelings, behavior and even social life and relationships. Besides, they are themselves subject of influences from various aspects like the society’s concept of beauty and the actual stage of development of building technology. To create and change rooms is one of the most demanding and responsible tasks.

The shape of our whole surrounding is due to its context: historical, cultural and human aspects come together and characterize design as a product of its interrelations and individual circumstances. Convinced about the importance of knowledge about history of building and design she studied Architectural History, Theory and Interpretation (MA) at London Metropolitan University and graduated with the Master Dissertation ‘Architecture of Remembrance:
Memory, Aesthetics and the Holocaust’ which focuses on contemporary commemoration by means of built spaces.

Veronika Szczygiel

I`m studying at the Cologne University of Applied Sciences with the Master Major Corporate Architecture to develop myself in a specific direction of architecture. My basic idea is to create identity through architecture. No matter if it’s a flagship store for a brand or a house. Architecture has to change people and society in a positive way and perhaps even act as an impetus for development.

Accompanying the Master’s program I work with an cologne architect. There I am an integral part of a perfectly complementary team. We are currently working on the reconstruction of a known landmark office building in Cologne. Furthermore we rebuild buildings all over Germany for an insurance company within the meaning of corporate identity.

Creativity and pragmatism belong to me, as well as painting and the simple things in life, like enjoying the sun. Thanks to this operation, I find it easy to solve complex design tasks and to establish them in detail. I worked on challenging projects, such as conversion of an office building into hotel-use or redevelopment and redesign of a loft in Berlin.

I love the variety in everyday work of an architect. Currently I have experienced this and I feel like I`m in the right place. The next goal is to complete my master’s thesis successfully. The Summer School gives me to go-ahead for it. The issue of corporate museum will be a part of my masterwork. I’m glad to have the possibility to explore this topic in Istanbul and Naples within the cultural aspect.
