Jeroen van Ameijde, The Chinese University of Hong Kong


Jeroen van Ameijde is Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, teaching and conducting research in architecture, urban analytics and data-driven design. Before joining CUHK, he taught at the Architectural Association in London, as well as at The Bartlett, UCL, and the University of Pennsylvania. He has over ten years of experience as practicing architect and urban designer, including as a partner and director at Urban Systems Office, where he coordinated the design and development of several large-scale residential, mixed-use and master planning projects.

Jeroen’s research interests focus on the intersection between urban studies and urban design, and how the analysis and planning of social, cultural and economic activities can be guided through computational methods for data management and design testing. He explores generative design methodologies to test programmatically complex urban and architectural proposals, as well as urban modelling techniques to speculate on processes of future urban development. He has published and lectured internationally and has taught or coordinated workshops in collaboration with numerous universities. His recent research work includes studies into urban regeneration in Shenzhen and Hong Kong, as well as environment-behaviour, estate planning and placemaking studies related to Hong Kong’s public housing.
