To what extent does our urban environment influence our use of it? How do we change our environment by our use? David Dooghe is fascinated by these questions, and is constantly searching for the underlying principles between space and use, this in order to optimise interactions between people and their urban environment.

Dooghe studied architecture in Gent, interior design in Eeklo, and urban design in Rotterdam and Cottbus. He has taught at Sint-Lucas (Gent/ Brussels) and the Rotterdamse Academie van Bouwkunst. 

He is a part-time PhD researcher in urban development at the University of Antwerp. His PHD research is co-operation with Deltametropolis Association (Rotterdam) and, in short, focuses on the shifts in the urban development of midsize European metropolitan regions since the financial and economic crises of 2008.

He works as a designer and researcher on assignments of varying scales and timeframes. The resulting projects are characterized by a strong connection with the spatial, cultural, social, and economic context in which they occur.

Questioning space and human behaviour is, for Dooghe, the path to a sustainable project.
