Bettina Horváth, born 1991 in Budapest (Hungary), studied Landscape Architecture at Corvinus University and an additional year at Technische Universität Wien, where she studied Urban and regional planning through Erasmus Scholarship. During her studies she attended international workshops, in Wien and in the Netherlands, where she met new research methods and gained experiences of urban research through participatory actions. She also took part in designing art installations and interventions, which aimed to understand the cultural production of public spaces.
The topic of her master’s research was an urban revitalisation of a post-industrial area, which was linked to a coherent green network system of the XXI. district of Budapest, focusing on creating an ecological corridor and a linear recreational track of regional importance.
