Aron Bohmann

Aron is an expert on urban design, smart cities and housing. At Buro Happold he leads the Smart Cities offer in Europe and works on urban developments and master planning projects, as well as on the implementation of integrated infrastructures.

He advises public and private sector clients on the use of smart city applications in the best interest of the inhabitants. He understands the digital transition and the use of smart technologies as cross-sectional topics that integrate technical aspects like mobility and energy as well as experience-driven elements that result in behaviour and experience.

Before joining the company, Aron directed the German Mobility Award, which is awarded to the most progressive, data-driven mobility solutions in Germany. At the same time, he taught urban planning classes at HafenCity University in Hamburg. Prior, he was one of three curators on Conflicts of an Urban Age, an exhibition for the Venice Biennale, about current urban challenges.

Aron also worked for various clients as researcher, on urban design competitions and as technical expert. He is well versed on organising and conducting public and stakeholder consultations and other participatory processes.

Aron studied Urban and Regional Planning in Vienna and Istanbul before completing a MSc in Urban Design in Hamburg and a MSc in City Design and Social Science in London.
