Nick works at the intersection of Theory, Digital Design, and Art. He studied Architecture at the Technical University of Munich and the Aarhus School of Architecture with a focus on Architectural and Urban Theory, and Computational Design. In 2019 he graduated with high distinction.
In addition to several independent projects in Scenography, Art, and Computational Design, he worked in Architecture and Urban Design agencies like zanderrotharchitekten, raumlaborberlin, and AWWSCZ. In the field of computational design, he collaborated with Vorhammer Computational Design and Nodeconsult. Nick takes part in the collective P.o.N.R and the Agency for Architectural Labour.
Currently, Nick works as Research Associate at the Chair of Architectural Informatics at the Technical University of Munich and researches the techno-politics of urban analytical infrastructure.
