Sophie van Riel graduated in Architecture at the TU Delft. Within the field of architecture, she always tried to search for the interaction with other disciplines since she enjoys taking up the challenge of combining different inputs and translating it into one coherent idea. She broadened herself by doing a pre-masters in computer science and participating in multiple interdisciplinary research projects. Currently, she is working together with Willie Vogel (WG2) and Italo de Vroom (WG4) on further developing their graduation work. They researched 18 towns/cities in the EU to understand how people feel connected to multiple scales (EU and local scale). To understand this they held interviews, organised discussions and captured the places in sketches, film and photography. To be able to design a place that captures the rich variety of the European landscape they used architectural and literary methods to translate the vast amount of gathered information into architecture.
