AIMS AND EXPECTATIONS
By focusing on vernacular, contextual and sustainable architecture in an intercultural and interdisciplinary context I aim to develop locally appropriate construction solutions. Together with the network of CoCoon I am offering a cooperation base for cross-cultural building projects, seminars, and the exchange of knowledge and people on the interface between academia and non-academia.
Nina Pawlicki has been a researcher at the Habitat Unit since November 2013. She became part of CoCoon – the sector for contextual construction in 2011.
With a particular interest in actor-driven processes in the design of social spaces she ran Design-Build projects in Mexico, Mongolia, Jordan and Germany. Since 2014 her work focuses on refugees as urban actors in Berlin cooperating closely with the NGO Über den Tellerrand.
She co-initiated and is currently part of the research consortium 'EDBKN – European DesignBuild Knowledge Network' funded by the European Union. In 2012 she co-hosted the symposium 'DesignBuild-Studio: New Ways in Architectural Education' at TU Berlin as first international encounter of DesignBuild-Studios and their network partners. Since 2011 she works as project manager and construction supervisor for CoCoons DesignBuild-Studio 'Praktikumsseminar Mexiko' where she participated as a student in 2009. She has a wide range of experiences from working as a freelance architect for different architecture offices. Nina studied architecture at the Technische Universität Berlin and the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
