TU Dresden is my Uni because we design architecture for everyone to use. We do research on universal accessibility and implement our findings in our work.
I am an architect and a Professor of Social and Health Care Buildings and Design. I work at TU Dresden because here we implement the goal of a built environment that can be used by everyone in research, teaching and in the buildings on campus.
In architecture, we build models to allow people to form an impression of the design in its future environment. In this way, it is possible to check whether a building will fit into the surrounding urban space or whether it will dominate it as a solitaire. The right approach must be found, for every building project and location.
As part of my professorship, we develop architectural strategies for dealing with demographic change. We also plan interior spaces. Here, our research focusses particularly on dementia-sensitive architecture in acute care hospitals, as these need to change due to the growing number of elderly people requiring treatment. The aim is to ensure that architecture and care processes are optimally co-ordinated and contribute to the well-being and recovery of patients.
