Philipp Heckmann-Umhau

Philipp is a Graduate student of Economics at King’s College, Cambridge, having completed his BA with Double First Class Honours in 2016. His architectural work has been awarded both the Purcell Prize, and the Jill Rickers Award.

As a designer, Philipp tried to address urban issues such as rising living cost, public health and sustainability. Having focused on the politics of urban planning and design, Philipp has become interested in an economic reading of the built environment, which has been his motivation to pursue his current studies of Economics.

Philipp has been supervised by Maximilian Sternberg, Nicholas Bullock, Hanna Weibye and Stefan Muthesius. He is a scholar of King’s College in Cambridge, of the German Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes, and of the Hamburg based Sutor Trust. Philipp has worked and interned for organisations as varied as the National Trust of England, Savills and BNP Paribas Real Estate.
