Astrid Piber

UNStudio, Partner | Amsterdam, Netherlands


Astrid Piber is a Partner at UNStudio, in charge of several large-scale design projects globally. In projects such as the Arnhem master plan and the Raffles City mixed-use development in Hangzhou, China, the interdependency of functional, economic, and future-proofing criteria has led to organizations that go beyond segregated typologies. Piber has worked with a trans-scalar approach—from large-scale mobility projects to custom-crafted interiors—where user experience adds value to design. Sophisticated placemaking strategies are part of the design approach for commercial and high-rise developments, such as V-on-Shenton, The Scotts Tower (Singapore), The Hanwha HQ (Seoul) and Raffles City Hangzhou (China).
