Eli Hatleskog is a research associate with the Urban ID project at the University of Bristol. She is a trained architect and theorist who divides her time between research and practice. Through her work with Urban ID she has been supporting and researching citizen-led and participatory housing initiatives in Bristol, as well as conducting interviews and investigations into the challenges of interdisciplinary research. Prior to this, she worked across Europe as part of an EU Innovative Training Network of creative practitioners/researchers, developing and refining novel methodologies for creative practice research (ADAPT-R ITN) and also on an interdisciplinary research project supporting the live process relating to the master planning of Norway’s first socially sustainable carbon-neutral neighbourhood at Brøset, Trondheim. The master planning activities were a pilot project for the state’s Cities of the Future initiative and at the forefront for innovative thinking regarding design processes, master planning and sustainable lifestyles. Her core interest lies in improving the sustainability of our cities through collaborative actions and exploring the idea of an architect who designs networks for collaboration and negotiation across the building professions, government, academia and the public.
