Speaks German, Norwegian & English
I lived in Graz, where I studied at the Technical University. In that period, I worked in various architectural offices before I moved to Oslo to study at AHO in the class of Sverre Fehn. Here I met Siv, I fell in love and we started Helen & Hard as students. Since then time went very fast. Siv and I always shared a passion for architecture, art and philosophy which we constantly try to foster and implement in our daily work. Besides working in the studio I teach at various universities including Kansas State University, AHO Oslo, ESA Paris or HUST Wuhan, China.
Special professional interests: concept development, design, philosophy and bionic.
I love drawing, reading and running.
