Saskia Hebert was trained as architect in Hamburg and Berlin and founded her office subsolar* architektur & stadtforschung together with Matthias Lohmann in 2001. After winning a first prize for their Europan-9-entry „brücke & tür“ in 2008, they rebuilt an open air stage and the station square in Spremberg, Lausitz. In 2012 Saskia received a doctorate and established the „lived/space/lab“ at the University of the Arts in Berlin (2012–2015). Since 2015, she is a guest professor for Transformation Design at the University of the Arts in Braunschweig. At the interface between theory and practice, she experiments with participative formats in teaching and planning, regarding residents as “local experts” for their environment. See also her publications “Gebaute Welt | Gelebter Raum” (2012), “Lived Space Lichtenberg #1 / #2” (Ed., 2014/2015) and for further information www.subsolar.net.
