Stefanie Dens is a civil engineer-architect and urban designer. She is fascinated by complex urban projects and interdisciplinary collaborations.

Favorite (place in the) city
Kathmandu. Located at a crossroads of historic trade routes between China, Tibet and India, nested right next to a tectonic fault line, the city is a melting pot of building cultures, languages and traditions. A contemporary metropolis at the foot of the high mountains, where (rainy) seasons are still part of everyday life - fascinating, no?
