Florian and IBA’27
»I joined IBA because I am interested in the question of what our lives, homes and work will be like in an urban environment in the future? IBA sees itself as a space for experimentation and an interdisciplinary innovation lab for the project initiators. We want to be a partner for questions around sustainable and circular building for projects and processes. I am passionate about making this value added visible and tangible for society and for the environment.«
