I am passionate about the future of the city, which I approach as a complex (eco)system. Therefore, I like work on the sweet spot of the connections and build bridges. Do you want to connect? Just reach out via info(a)mathiaslehner(dot)nl!

After studying architecture in Vienna and Delft, I built up experience in design, strategy and sustainability. My approach is interdisciplinary and embedded in an international context. Economic, ecologic and social values are central aspects of my work.

Currently I work as a Strategic Advisor Urban Development to Zaanstad Municipality (160k inhabitants rapidly growing to 200k), expert on nature-inclusive design for Utrecht Province and Founding Research Director at nextcity.nl, a platform for quality of life in the city for all species.

It’s inspiring to develop talent and teach (e.g. Academy of Architecture Amsterdam, University of Applied Sciences and University of Amsterdam, Delft University of Technology and abroad). For the Royal Institute of Dutch Architects (BNA) I set up the international program and together with developer Synchroon the career accelerator www.nextstepprogram.nl.

I believe in sharing knowledge and mutual inspiration, so let’s get in touch exchange views and find our mutual interest!
