Dipl. Ing. Architect
Jörg has been a Chartered Architect since 1999, and is one of the three founding Directors of m2r-architecture. Having initially trained as a construction worker, he studied architecture at the universities of Liverpool, Seattle and Dresden.
After completing his studies Jörg worked for Prof. Striffler in Dresden and for Petzinka Pink Architects in Düsseldorf. Through his strong design skills, he was successful in winning several design competitions as a result of which, at the age of 31, he was empowered to build an award winning Concert Hall in Bochum, for 80 million Euro.
m2r was incorporated in 2002 to enable the three founding Directors to pool their individual expertise and creative flair, and collaborate closely on future innovative projects of common interest. This harmonious relationship has resulted in numerous submissions to international design competitions and projects, based upon the collective input of the three leading principals and their support team.
In recognition of his work, Jörg was made a Professor for Architecture in Germany and was lecturing in design and building technology at the Technical University of Darmstadt during 2004/05. For his academic work he was awarded the faculty’s Medal of Honour in December 2005.
Amongst the projects for which Jörg is currently carrying out the leading role, are a Hilton project in Russia and an office building in Kiev. These projects require a regular presence in Russia and the Ukraine and will be mainly managed from our Kiev office.
