Mira Baba


Mira Baba is a landscape architect and an MSc student in Geography, Urban and Environmental Studies. She is interested in designing and creating lively public spaces through participatory and community-based approaches, with a particular interest in place-making and urban acupuncture as tools of urban transformation and public realm regeneration. Inspired by the notion of loose space, her MSc research project explores the value of indeterminate spaces as spaces of potential, creativity, and activism. The objectives of her thesis are thus to uncover the value of these overlooked spaces and look at them as breathing spaces that help in the urban revitalization of post-industrial neighborhoods, making them an integral part of the urban fabric, and to examine how the community re-imagines them in a gentrified post-industrial neighborhood.
