Since 2013 I am working at 'gmp - Architekten von Gerkan, Marg und Partner' in Berlin in different kind of national and international Projects.

After my Bachelor degree I was focused on an international experience wherefore i decided to study one year to Japan. In two trimester at ‘University of Tsukuba’ i choose to attend a diverse fields of studies like world heritage, printing techniques and graphic design to enhance my interdisciplinary conception. Furthermore i worked 4 month in the architecture office ‘Shigeru-Ban-Architects’ in Tokyo. To compare this practical experience i worked at the german architecture office ‘Graft Architekten’ in Berlin. I specify my architectural perception with the generalistic Master study course at the ‘Brandenburg University of Technology in Cottbus’ in 2010.

‘Architektur.Studium.Generale.‘ comprises 8 Workshops in a network of 8 different Universities in Europe. Each 7 weeks a new environment, new teaching methods and a new challenges which needed to be solved. In participatory groups of international students i learned to facilitate diverse approaches and perspectives to a common solution. This study course enabled me to enhance my abilities in strategic planning and conceptual design. Furthermore i expanded my knowledge in visual communication, graphic design and theoretical work by which i won the first price at the ‘International Young Planning Professional Award’ and hold a lecture at the ‘European Urban Summer School’ in London.
