Greta Hauer is a Designer and Researcher interested in speculative scenarios that examine the governance of space. 

Cross-disciplinary projects examine existing systems by tracing their geographical, political and cultural changes and often unseen impact on society. Projects use design as a methodology to simulate past and future events resulting a variety of media, including text, models, film and architectural interventions.

Next to her practice, she teaches Design at Goldsmiths University and Design Thinking at Open University.
