Ole B. Jensen
Ole B. Jensen is Professor of Urban Theory and Urban Design at the Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology, Aalborg University, Denmark. He holds a BA in political science, an MA in sociology, a phd in planning, and a higher doctorate (Dr.) in mobility. His research is oriented towards the relationship between cities as infrastructural landscapes, and the social and cultural lifeforms herein. His research is based on the ‘mobilities turn’ and is in particular framed around the notion of ‘mobilities design’. Seeing infrastructures, technologies, and spaces as 'habitats' of mobile subjects takes his research into interdisciplinary settings. He is interested in the multi-sensorial and affective/atmospheric entanglements of humans and non-humans in the contemporary urban mobility landscapes. He is the founder and co-director of the Center for Mobilities and Urban Studies (C-MUS). He is now working on a 4-year research project titled Dark Design - Social Exclusion in Urban Space that targets hostile design towards homeless people.
