Co-Founder & Communications Director

Copenhagen > Mexico City



Exceptional ALIEN



Danish storyteller Simon Caspersen likes to walk. Perhaps this is unsurprising given he comes from a city where everything is a 15-minute walk, or cycle, away. Simon is Co-Founder of SPACE10, a Copenhagen-based design and research lab on a mission to create a better everyday life for people and the planet. From food futures and emergent technologies to climate science, Simon finds ways to communicate complex issues in a visual form that resonates — and hopefully inspires people around the world to design innovative solutions. Simon’s well-stamped passport has traversed Lebanon, Palestine, India, Italy and Japan, but it was the seductive streetscapes of Mexico City that caught his very Copenhagen-attached heart off-guard. Since, CDMX has lured him back again and again. We chat with Simon about where his creativity has taken him, envisioning the ideal city, and his top Mexico City Travel Playbook for exploring the capital on foot.
