Stephan Birk appointed to TUM

As of April 2021, Prof. Stephan Birk will directly succeed Prof. Hermann Kaufmann and take over the Professorship of Architecture and Timber Construction at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). "It is an important yet demanding time to be an architect, and a great challenge to be involved in education. Faced with the climate crisis and the very fundamental question of how may we build, both research and teaching take on a central role. Participating actively in this change is part of my motivation and vision for the engagement at TUM," Birk states.
