She has worked closely with Bjarke Ingels across a wide range of projects and typologies such as the Danish Pavilion for the 2010 Shanghai Expo, an energy efficient skyscraper currently completed in Shenzhen, a low energy masterplan in Toronto, and residential projects such as Dortheavej 2 in Copenhagen and 79 & PARK in Stockholm, that enhance the urban fabric by creating shared social spaces as a byproduct of the design. She was the Design Leader for Hualien Residences, a residential masterplan in Taiwan that seeks to blur the line between natural landscape and the built environment. At the moment Cat is the Partner in Charge for the Tawarowa 22, a Masterplan in Warsaw.
