Aline has been working at Brut since January 2022. Her main focus is on projects that combine architecture and urban design, such as the residential development ‘Komet’ in Mechelen, the design of a student residence in Leuven or a masterplan for the centre of Tessenderlo.

In 2021, she graduated as an engineer-architect at UGent. Over the years, 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.
