Floortje Vermeer, Waag

Floortje VermeerConcept Developer

Floortje Vermeer is a concept developer at Waag, mainly within the Urban Ecology Lab. As a so-called city maker, she focuses on how we can design cities in a participatory way, together with residents and other stakeholders in a neighbourhood. And how can we give animals, plants, fungi or other life more space or even a voice in urban design? She often works with artists and designers on such issues.

Besides her work at Waag, Floortje works at De Regenboog Groep, where she sets up an art programme in a shelter together with homeless people.

Previously, she worked at Cascoland, an international network of artists, architects and performers who work in public spaces together with local residents to create an ecological and social neighbourhood. Floortje is currently still active as a board member at Cascoland.
