I was trained in architecture in Germany, Italy and Canada and relocated to New York City in 2000 after graduating from the University of Dresden, Germany.
In 2004 I established my own practice, normaldesign, following my successful entry to the internationally open World Trade Center competition, in which my proposition was chosen as one of eight finalist entries. My work has since been situated in the interstice between architecture, art and research, with recognized work in all three fields of engagement. Over the past years I have pursued a number of works concerned with the social processes which underlie creative projects in art and architecture. This interest is focused in particular on correlations between social and resource ecologies as they pertain to the built environment, as well as the formation of societal signifiers. This interest has been part of an ongoing artistic, academic and curatorial trajectory.
