Filippo Imberti is an urban planner and GIS specialist.
His focus of interest lies in the intersection of sustainable regional planning and digital urbanism.
During his career, he coordinated large-scale urban transformation proposals and elaborated strategies and guidelines for multi-stakeholders programmes. He managed partnerships with international and local organizations, supported publications and capacity-building activities, and prepared concept notes and donor reports.
Recent examples of his work are the awarded proposal Landscape of Differences, a spatial strategy for the integrated development of the Berlin-Brandenburg regions, and the masterplan for Blankenburger Süden, currently the largest planned urban transformation of Berlin.
Previously he coordinated the Urban Structural Plan for five Mozambican cities, co-edited the proposal of the multi-stakeholder initiative The Implementation Gap, and developed the spatial concept for the provision of public restrooms in Berlin.
Together with Thomas Stellmach, he collaborated with UN-Habitat, supporting the programme for achieving sustainable urban development (ASUD) in the Philippines and Mozambique, preparing a methodology of planning workshops for professionals and city leaders in rapid urbanisation contexts (RPS – Rapid Planning studio), and developing design strategies for five pilot projects in emerging cities in The Philippines (BCRUPD – Building Climate Resilience through Urban Planning and Design).
Filippo leads the technology and innovation department of TSPA, focusing on data-driven solutions and GIS applications within the spatial development practice.
