Alex Lenhoff is in his final semester of the Masters of Planning in Civic Urbanism program at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. His other degrees include anthropology and foreign languages, which provide him with a diverse, human-centered perspective of urban planning. Alex returned to Orlando after spending a few years exploring Europe, teaching English, and attending universities in Germany and Spain. He hopes to use his experiences abroad to further the built environment in Florida through efficient design, environmentally friendly practices, and authentic communities. In the future, he would like to focus on urban development and community building through site plan illustrations, concept renderings, branding, and marketing. For The Grid, Alex will write about Orlando’s challenges and successes, while profiling a city coming into its own.
