It is with great pleasure that I would like to contribute my many years of professional experience to the newly established professorship of Wood Architecture. Graz as a centre of culture and science in general and the Institute of Architecture Technology at TU Graz in particular have an excellent reputation among colleagues and for me this is a kind of return to my roots: before building my first timber constructions, I undertook extensive architectural excursions in Austria in order to study existing timber architecture.

Whenever moving to a new place, I prepared for the journey but I was always open to surprises. The same holds for Graz: Certainly, you can browse through web pages, read many books or papers about the place or the research at TU Graz. But from my point of view, getting to know the new colleagues and meeting other researchers make the appeal of being in Graz. Especially, I appreciated how common it is to being invited to different research groups and laboratories.

After several years working in industry, I returned to academia. Choosing TU Graz was an easy decision. I studied here and knew about the high quality of the university’s education and research. TU Graz is at the centre of Austria’s “Silicon Valley”. Its close proximity to numerous companies means that it is an ideal place for research cooperation ventures. As a student city, Graz is also a fantastic place to live.

TU Graz is a very appealing educational and research organization. The high standard related to important aspects of teaching, research, innovation and equipment enables the production of internationally recognized research outcomes. The judicious balance between fundamental and applied research with specific interest towards industrial needs allows for a variety of exciting multidisciplinary challenges. Additionally Graz is a cozy city surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes… I love it!
