Associate Researcher

Urban Development (UD)

After finishing his studies in Architecture at the Technische Universiteit Delft in 2001 Paulus van der Kuil started a career in real estate development and investment management. In his time as developer Paul has been working on various large residential housing schemes in the urban area of Rotterdam and the province of South-Holland. After his move in 2006 to Berlin, Paul continued working in Real Estate as Asset Manager of pan European commercial and residential real estate portfolios of various investment funds. Additionally, Paul successfully completed in 2010 the Master of Science programme in Real Estate Management of the Technische Universität Berlin. From 2010 until 2016, Paul worked on a portfolio of residential investments in France, Netherlands, Germany and the Scandinavian countries. During this time, he gained specific experience in open ended funds subject to the European Alternative Investment Funds Directive. Looking back at a dynamic career in Real Estate, Paul decided in 2016 to use his professional experience for academic research. To this end he started a PhD-research under the title “Investorenarchitektur; the (un)happy marriage of real estate and architecture, and the user as its forgotten child”, on which he is currently working under the supervision of Prof. Kristin Wellner, chair of the department of real estate at the institute of Architecture at the Technische Universität Berlin. Within the Masters Programme Urban Development Paul is responsible for the coordination of the real estate and urban economics course.

According to Paul Urban developments and architectural schemes can only become successful when economically feasible in both development and management phases. However, getting the numbers right is only one part of the urban developer’s proficiency. Through understanding and practicing with the interdisciplinary urban development processes, the UD Master’s course delivers a unique opportunity to learn how cities of the future should be build. These complex but fascinating interdependencies between sociology, economy, law, ecology and architecture are the main drivers for his research and teaching activities.
