“My passion is designing, creative thinking,
collaborating and connecting people and ideas,
in particular in the field of green, climate-responsive urban spaces.”
Wiebke Klemm graduated as a landscape architect from TU Dresden, Germany. She worked as professional landscape architect in the policy oriented Netherlands Institute for Spatial Research and in a design office for several years before starting a PhD research at Wageningen University & research. In her PhD research she examined into the impacts of urban green infrastructure, such as urban green spaces and elements, on thermal conditions and residents’ thermo-spatial perception in urban environments. This projects transdisciplinarily links academic knowledge from landscape architecture and urban meteorology with knowledge from urban design practice to enhance climate-responsive urban designing. For her valorisation efforts in exchanging knowledge with societal stakeholders she received the ‘Outstanding Doctoral Student Award 2014’ from the European Council for Landscape Architecture Schools (ECLAS).
Wiebke is coordinator of the Metropolitan Solutions Consortium (MetSol) at Wageningen University & Research, that is aiming to co-develop, test and refine metropolitan solutions together with citizens, businesses and public actors through an integrated living lab approach on the , based mainly in Amsterdam, and connected to the national and international context.
