Antti Pirinen

I am a postdoctoral researcher working in the intersection of product design and spatial design. My research interests include user-centred and collaborative design in the case of urban housing, as well as the emerging conceptual and strategic aspects of residential design and development that fall beyond traditional architectural design. At large, my research aims at contributing to a human-centred living environment where spaces, products, technologies and services conjoin to enable a better everyday. In my doctoral thesis, I investigated the urban dwelling as a product from the perspectives of housing industry, residents and design. I am currently also involved in the Urban Academy, a multi-disciplinary collaboration on urban studies between Aalto University and the University of Helsinki.
