Laura is a trained landscape architect exploring spatial strategies in the field of urban research. The relationality of meanings, practices and materialities of space and place is central to her theoretical and photographic work. 
Laura is a lecturer and researcher at the Department of Open Space Development (HGU Geisenheim) as well as an associated doctoral researcher at the Research Training Group 'Urban Future-Making' (HCU Hamburg). Her thesis ‘Spatial Configurations of Green Urban Stewardship’ investigates the intersection of formal and informal spatial strategies and their potentials for open space development. Prior to teaching bachelor’s- and master’s-level design studios as well as theoretical and practical seminars, Laura worked for Vogt Landscape Architects in Zurich and Berlin.
