Studio Malta


Hello, we are Studio Malta.

We work across scales in the fields of city and urban planning, architecture and design on creative and participatory processes.
We act at the interface between practice-oriented and conceptual work. We develop customized strategies to realize our projects and introduce relevant matters into public discourse.

Marta Toscano

After her architecture studies in Ferrara and Stuttgart, Marta worked with several architectural practices while developing free projects about creative and participatory urban development. Since 2018 she assists the Round Table for Berlin Property Politics and develops spatial strategies with Belius GmbH.

Aida Nejad

Aida has been working on various independent projects and formats around the topic of user-driven urban development for several years. She studied architecture in Braunschweig and Stuttgart and works at the Department of Urban Planning of the University of Kaiserslautern since 2017.

Jan-Timo Ort

Jan-Timo studied architecture and urban planning in Hannover and Stuttgart. Throughout and after his studies, he has worked in various offices and independent projects on issues in the context of ecology, architecture and urban landscapes.

Aaron Schirrmann

Aaron studied architecture in Stuttgart and worked as a carpenter between 2006 and 2011. He gained professional experience in offices with different specializations and teaches at the Institute for Landscape Planning and Ecology at the University of Stuttgart since July 2018. His projects oscillate between architectural and urban issues, practical construction projects, participative workshop formats, public discourse and production-oriented output in all scales.
