Filip H. Gonçalves


I’m Filip from Germany and I am Design student of the HAWK Hildesheim.

Design is often referred to give things an appealing shape or to make them look nice and pretty. For me it became clear pretty fast that we live in a world that doesn’t need more pretty objects. We have problems in our society that are much more urgent and require action. The question of how we can create places and processes that improve and add value to people lives and society is fascinating me. Exploring the way we work and live together has led me to work on several projects with a focus on creating inspiring working condition and participative Design.


I came to Critical Concrete for an internship to learn more about creating an organization with a social impact and to focus more on sustainability. At the moment I am mainly working on finishing the construction of the Green Roof.
