A German Paradigm for Reexamining Residual Urban Spaces: The Role of Schrebergärten in Leipzig, Germany looks at the present-day state of allotment gardens in Leipzig in the context of 150 years of urban growth, decline and development. An exploration of diverse adjacencies, this project reveals the unique way in which green-space has woven itself into the urban fabric, transcending typical notions of what city-gardens look like. 

Louisa Jáuregui graduated from the Carnegie Mellon School of Architecture with a B.Arch in 2009. She is an avid cyclist and proponent of city-living with an interest in the insertion of nature into urban environments. Living and working in Pittsburgh and then Seattle after graduation, she became a registered architect in the state of Washington in 2011 while working mostly on single-family residential construction. Her receipt of the Highlands Travel Fellowship coincided with her and her partner's decision to move to Germany in 2016. Following her investigation into the Schrebergarten culture of Leipzig, Louisa has since been employed as a Research Coordinator at the Max Planck Institute of Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany where she is the proud owner of a fixer-upper of an allotment garden.
