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.

The TU Graz enjoys an excellent international reputation and is located in the heart of the research and innovation region of Styria. TU Graz’s proximity and close ties to the surrounding high-tech companies, as well as its lively international culture, continuously increase the quality of research and teaching offered and make it an attractive employer. By discussing cutting-edge topics such as security and automated driving, TU Graz once again demonstrates its impressive ability to adapt to the dynamic, constantly changing research landscape.

TU Graz offers the optimal conditions for basic research, research-guided teaching and industrial research cooperation, especially in the cutting-edge field of automated driving. I also studied here due to the attractive range of courses offered and have worked for the TU Graz for many years.

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.
