Enlai Hooi is the Head of Innovation at Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects in Copenhagen, Denmark. An architect and industrial designer with specialisation in integrating engineering fields in circular design and architecture, Enlai brings a diverse range of skills to the task of managing complex challenges in the built environment. He leads the firm’s sustainability approach and agenda on adaptive transformation, circular building methods, material health and participatory design strategies. Enlai has won numerous awards in both architecture and design. His experience in designs transgresses scales from product design through architecture to master planning, and his experience with structural environmental and mechanical engineers allows him to communicate fluently across professions.

Samuel Gonçalves is the founder of SUMMARY, an architectural practice based in Porto, Portugal. His work has been published and exhibited globally in several venues, such as the Venice Biennale, The Boston Society of Architects and the BAUHAUS Centenary. SUMMARY was selected as the 2020 “The Emerging Architect of the Year” by Dezeen readers.

Maya Mahgoub-Desai is the Chair of Environmental Design at OCAD University and a practicing Urban Designer and Planner with Moriyama Teshima Architects. Her interdisciplinary research interests focus on public health, socio-ecological models of urban development, and decolonization of design pedagogy. Her current SSHRC-funded research projects investigate environmental health, public realm design, and inclusive approaches to community collaboration.

Mauricio Quirós Pacheco is a Costa Rican-born architect and Assistant Professor at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture at the University of Toronto. Mauricio was part of the Office of the Director at the Canadian Centre for Architecture and practiced architecture in America and Europe before joining the faculty. He holds a master with distinction from Harvard University and a Bachelor of Architecture from Universidad del Diseño.

Alexander Sacharow of Berlin-based Penthaus à la Parasit is a political advisor, activist and artist. His fields of expertise are housing, economics and foreign policy. He is an active member of several urban and art collectives as well as a lecturer and workshop facilitator for analytical techniques and forecasting methods. He is interested in the intersection of research, policy and change- making.

Andreas Tjeldflaat is the founder of Framlab, a New York and Bergen-based design studio. He is an advisor for Antler and member of the Real Estate Market advisory group for UNECE. In addition, Andreas has held teaching positions at institutions such as Columbia University and Cornell University.

Jakob Wirth of Berlin-based Penthaus à la Parasit is an artist, activist and sociologist, who’s focus of work is the public space. He chooses his artistic language processual and according to the context and topic he is working with. It expands from Performance Art, Video, Social Practice and direct Guerilla Interventions. His main interest is to intertwine the artistic field with politics and “everyday realities”, by hijacking unknown systems and challenging norms. His aesthetic momentum lies therefore in an action's capacity to shift our empirical realities, by using and further twisting their own language and vocabulary.

Dan Wu is a product manager at Immuta, whose mission is legal and ethical data operations. He’s advocated for data ethics, inclusive urban innovation, and diversity in TechCrunch, Harvard Business Review, and Fast Company. He's helped Fortune 500 companies, governments, and startups with ethical & agile data strategies. He holds a Harvard J.D. & Ph.D and has been a legal engineer, privacy counsel, and startup lawyer.

 

The Berlin Affordable Housing Challenge is part of Bee Breeders’ Affordable Housing series, in partnership with ARCHHIVE BOOKS, showcasing projects that invent new means for driving down housing prices.
