Biography

Deane Simpson is professor of architecture, urbanism and urban planning at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (KADK) where he leads the masters program Urbanism and Societal Change. Educated at Columbia University and ETH Zürich, he has previously practiced with Diller + Scofidio, and taught at the AA London, BAS and ETH. His research addresses contemporary urban and architectural conditions, exploring themes such as: the spatial conditions aligned to the transformation of Nordic welfare systems; the urban implications of large-scale demographic transformation; social and environmental sustainability within urban and regional settings; and problems related to the securitization of public space. Amongst a range of publications, he is author of Young-Old: Urban Utopias of an Aging Society (Lars Müller, 2015); and co-editor of The City between Freedom and Security (Birkhäuser, 2017); Forming Welfare (Danish Architecture Press 2017); and Atlas of the Copenhagens (Ruby Press, 2018).
