I am a trained architect. I graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and worked as an architect in Vienna, Barcelona and London, where I focused on urban planning projects and the design of office and residential buildings. I was project architect at Foreign Office Architects (FOA) and leader of the office intern high-rise research group. I also worked as an urban researcher on a comparative analysis of public spaces in London, Paris and Barcelona, sponsored by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF). I am a member of the NYLON research network and a founding member of the PhD research group citiesLAB.
