Joseph Huennekens

Joseph Weil Huennekens is a Doctoral Candidate in Urban Planning at Columbia GSAPP. Joe’s research interests include changing suburbs, land use conflict, exclusionary zoning, and planning practice. Prior to coming to Columbia GSAPP, he worked as a planner for the NYC Department of City Planning and as a program manager at the Design Trust for Public Space.

He holds a B.S in Architecture from the University of Virginia and a Masters in City Planning from the University of Pennsylvania. A native of the Washington D.C. area, Joe now lives in Brooklyn.

Joe’s doctoral research investigates land use change in New York’s suburbs. His research looks at instances where increasing suburban ethnic diversity disrupts land use paradigms — particularly formal and informal densification in “ethnoburbs.” He is interested in how non-normative suburban groups navigate the land use system, how municipal governments mediate divergent attitudes about density, and what these cases reveal about the making and unmaking of exclusionary zoning in the suburbs.
