Since 2010 he is a founding partner and the conceptional brain of ISSS research architecture urbanism. 

Before starting his own practice he gained experience working with DFA (Dietmar Feichtinger Architects) in Paris. Parallel to his work with ISSS he was teaching at the chair of urbanism at BTU Cottbus from 2013 to 2018. 

In his work he combines theoretical research with architectural and urbanistic practice.

He is a member of the Architektenkammer Berlin. 

ISSS research |architecture |urbanism was founded in 2010 by Ingrid Sabatier and Stephan Schwarz in Paris and is based in Berlin since 2012. Following a collaborative design approach, the studio works on holistic concepts, reaching from large-scale urban design schemes to innovative architectural proposals. 

As architects we care about beauty and feel responsible for the conditions we create with our projects. We are optimistic. We are contrarians.  We care about our planet.
