Linde Burkhardt. After studying art in Zurich, Berlin and Hamburg, Linde Burkhardt now divides her time between Germany, France and Italy, assimilating the ideas and atmospheres of the places she lives and works in. As well as being an architecture and design critic, she teaches, paints and designs, and organises exhibitions. One of her abiding interests is the influence that objects and places have on people. In Hamburg she helped to create public-space environments and founded the Urbane Design group.
