Aline started her studies in Engineering Architecture at the University of Ghent in 2015. During this time, her interest in sustainable urban design grew, which she further explored through her master’s degree in ‘Urban Design and Architecture’.

For her master’s thesis, she examined the consequences of climate change within the urban context of Brussels and how spatial projects can be used to realise climate adaptation in the city. She focused strongly on the role that water plays in this and how this can be interwoven with the social dynamics in the city. The Abattoir site in Anderlecht was the case study, in which she discussed the specific preconditions in detail and sketched a picture of what would be possible in the future in terms of green space.

In September 2021 Aline graduated and in January 2022 she started her architecture internship at BRUT.
