- "The fascinating water theme of the Architekten- und Planertag 2015 gave me the hint for a wider academic approach on the tight relationship between architecture and water in the Netherlands. My keynote speech "One Mould" has become the starting point of a new line of thinking within the educational programme of "Complex Projects" chair at the Faculty of Architecture of TU Delft. "One Mould" is now part of the "Water Seminar" Lecture Series, running parallel to the architectural graduation studio of "Complex Projects".

- "To discuss the theme of densification (Verdichtung) in the context of colleagues – brought me to the realisation that this familiar political goal is difficult to achieve within the restrains of conventional planning – Abstand etc.
Thus my theme „serious Verdichtung is illegal", here I was talking of informal settlement patterns in Albania Columbia or Asia.
Where, beyond the ‚Nimby’ Horizon, dense, lively and sustainable urban conglutination florish."
