Farewell to the GRID and Global Site Plans from Luise Letzner

My six months of blogging for The GRID are now coming to an end. I am thankful for the opportunity, the support, and inspiration which I received from the GRID team during this time. As a big fan of combining communication, especially social media, with urban planning, I am proud to have contributed to this field of knowledge with a few posts of my own.

The experience pushed me to investigate topics I have always been interested in and to creatively express thoughts on contemporary examples of urban planning and environmental design. I enjoyed having to take and work with pictures and to train my writing skills.

Still a Master’s student at Hamburg University, I will continue to work at the interface of urban planning and social media, hoping to find a way of combining these to fields of interest in the future to create meaningful tools for sustainable urban living.

Thank you, The GRID team!

All the best,

Luise Letzner
