Jan Zimmermann lives and works as a freelance journalist in Leipzig. The main topic of his work as a journalist is everything around building – from architecture to structural engineering and urban planning. He mainly supplies articles for various online formats. Among other things he has been working as an editor for mapolismagazin since 2013. Being a trained social scientist (e.g. a social and cultural anthropologist), Jan Zimmermann is particularly interested in the interactions of technological, social and ecological developments with architecture and urban development in the context of the construction industry. Fun fact: Far from his desk he also feels very close to less serious “art forms” as a “cosmonaut”.
