Margo Annemans graduated in 2005 at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) with a Master in Engineering-Architecture. In 2007, she completed her internship as an architect in practice and at the same time finished the Advanced Studies of Social and Cultural Anthropology, also at the University of Leuven. In 2015, she defended her PhD on the spatial experience of patients lying in a hospital bed. The PhD also focused on how insight into this experience could be passed on to architects. During her PhD, Margo worked at osar architects nv, an architecture company focusing on (health)care.
Since 2015, Margo works as a postdoctoral researcher in the Research[x]Design group at the Department of Architecture at KU Leuven. Her current research focusses on how space can accommodate activating patients. Margo is also interested in how designers, clients, and other actors in healthcare can gain insight into people’s experience.
