Laura Martens-Neumann

Urban Practitioner


Laura is an urbanist with a focus on urban-social transformation processes and social-scientific urban research. At TSPA, she is leading a project on risk-informed planning master planning in India and contributes to integrated urban development concepts as part of an international knowledge exchange network between German and American cities. Her work is shaped by her fascination with the interdisciplinary interplay of urban planning, and functional, socio-political, cultural, and economic perspectives in planning. The combination of different points of view, moderation of complex public work, and participation are essential components of her work experience. Laura believes that issues in urban society should always be viewed holistically, presented in a comprehensible manner, and discussed across disciplines in order to develop the best possible solutions.
