Dr.-Ing. Anke Jurleit

Umweltgerechte Stadt- und Infrastrukturplanung

Fachliche Schwerpunkte

Watersensitive urban design

Strategies and instruments for sustainable urban planning and communities

e- Mobility concepts and their integration into the urban environment

Beruflicher Werdegang

After her studies in urban planning at the universities in Hannover, ETH in Zürich and UC Berkeley, Anke worked at several small to large-scale architecture and urban planning offices in San Francisco. Her project involvement  ranges from major planning and urban design assignments globally to  large-scale community planning and design through projects  to academic campuses and private homes. As assistant and project manager, Anke maintained an active teaching and engagement profile which included teaching at UC Berkeley Extension and being actively involved in San Francisco’s  ULI chapter. During her time in California, Anke’s ever arising topic was to design for water scarcity. She was active participant in developing Aecom’s SSIM (Sustainable Systems Integration Model), a tool that models key environmental, economic and social indicators of large scale projects

Since 2010, Anke is member of the REAP research and teaching group. Her main task was to develop and carry through the REAP Project studios. Her research activities involved the documentation of watersensitive community Jenfelder Au and the ‘Hamburg Water Cycle’ (http://www.jenfelderau-info.de/).  Anke also assisted as technical advisor in developing the water-related topics and Indicators for the newly developed certification system  NSQ ‘Sustainable communities’ at the German sustainable building Council (DGNB).

Abgeschlossene Forschungsprojekte


The dissertation discusses certification systems (CS) for communities and their structure and choice of indicators and methodologies for sustainable water management. An important component of this work includes an investigation of commonly understood best practices for community scale water management and their comparability at an international level, as well as adaptability to different regional settings.

DGNB Consultant  and technical advisor for water infrastructure during development of NSQ certification system


Jenfelder Au

As a contribution to SWITCH‘s task ‚Comparative analysis of enabling factors of sustainable urban water management, Jenfelder Au was chosen as a case study project. Jenfelder Au is a project under the umbrella of the City of Hamburg and the District of Wandsbek. The focus of the documentation is to show instruments which make sustainable solutions in urban water management possible, but also looking at associated barriers



Contribution to Project ‘e-Quartier’ by developing  concepts for the integration of e-car sharing stations into the urban fabric. Link
