Interest and/or practice of interdisciplinarity: 

I am an architect and work as a researcher in urban planning and design. My research work is focused on improving the quality of urban environments through the cross sectoral approaches. The particular fields of my work are urban public space improvements, urban renewal, urban mobility and a research of cognitive dimensions of urban environments. I am recently most actively involved into Human Cities project with an interdisciplinary and international team of colleagues that addresses the issues of public urban space reclamation by civil society. I am an urban activist myself too trying to push the level of urban-living quality in Slovenian cities further. So besides my daily encounters with the need of interdisciplinary approach to urban design I see a need for active policies to encourage inter-stakeholders and inter-decision-making levels of cooperation.
