Kaja Kuehl
Youarethecity
Kaja Kuehl is a certified urban planner and Associate Professor at Columbia University, where she coordinates the Five Borough Studio as part of the University’s Urban Design Program and teaches studios and seminars related to her research on migration and urban spaces.  In 2008, Kuehl founded youarethecity, a research, design and planning practice that aims to create dialogue about the urban environment, with the philosophy that the complexity of the city can be harnessed as a transformative agent in the design and planning process. The organization collaborates with institutions, individuals and non-profit organizations to produce maps, diagrams, writings, designs, websites, events and exhibitions about urban spaces. Kuehl also previously worked for the New York City Department of City Planning as an Urban Designer and team leader, where she was responsible for design guidance and development of public policy for numerous rezoning applications and city initiatives. She received her Diploma in Architecture from the University in Karlsruhe, Germany and a Master of Science in Urban Planning from Columbia University.
