Shimona Malaihollo

Anthropologist & advisor

Shimona likes citytrips and when she travels, she is always trying to understand the culture of a place. How do people live and move in a place? Why do people feel at home in certain places? As an (organisational) anthropologist she likes to bridge the gap between different and sometimes contrasting perspectives. The past years she did this in her work on resident participatory processes during the renovations of social housing. This is where her interest in urban development with a focus on human scale originated. At STIPO she will be a part of the Placemaking Europe network and work on the Stadmakersfonds. In her spare time Shimona (with or without a surfboard) can often be found in the sea.
