José Luís Krug joined Space Syntax as a Project Consultant in October 2017 following an internship in 2016 as part of the Bauhaus MSc Program. He became a Senior Consultant in 2019 and Associate in 2022. Since joining he has worked with public and private stakeholders towards the improvement of the public realm in both London and abroad.

His experience ranges from cultural buildings design assessment to whole-city spatial analysis and master-planning. Furthermore, José Luis has been involved in research projects such as a UK-wide network for the transportation of goods and whole-city spatial analysis and master-planning.

José Luís studied architecture in Porto. He finished both his Bachelor and Masters degree in Architecture at Escola Superior Artística do Porto (ESAP). In 2018, he completed his MSc in European Urban Studies at the Bauhaus University Weimar, Germany, where he was awarded the prize of best student of the year.

His academic interest focused on the impact of typology and street configuration on the evolution of cities. His dissertation research was centred on the impact of historic Master Plans on the urban system in order to understand the evolution of the city on the second half of the 20th century. This is done through a configurational approach to the study of urban morphology.

He is an accredited architect by the Odem dos Arquitetos (Association of Portuguese Architects) and has worked in both the private and academic sector.
