Jochen is convinced that simplicity is the key for well operable and resilient buildings. Great design and architecture support this idea and reduce the necessity of technical equipment and in particular control systems.
Jochen sees himself as generalist and excels not only in the design process but enjoys defining and developing the details of the concepts in the later phases. He started at Transsolar with intensive studies based on thermal simulations and developing the software TRNSYS. This deep understanding of physical and thermodynamical relations in building and energy supply systems is still fundamental for his work. Driven by curiosity and interest in innovation, Jochen not only continuously deepens his own knowledge, but shares it successfully as mentor and lecturer.
