  • Stefan Schäfer
    Prof. Stefan Schaefer is a professor of Constructive Design and Building Construction at the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany. Counting just 35 years when joining in 1998, he was one of the youngest full professors being hired by the university. He founded and since directed the Constructive Design and Building Construction program within the Department of Civil Engineering. Prof. Schaefer started his professional career as a carpenter before studying architecture at the University of Applied Science in Kaiserslautern, from where he graduated in 1987 receiving an award for graduate excellence for his academic achievements. He then enrolled in the Architecture and Urban Planning program at the University of Stuttgart. Graduating in 1991, he once again received a graduate excellence award for best thesis of his class. In his professional career as a practicing architect he soon moved from Stuttgart to Genoa, Italy to work for Renzo Piano, one of the few architects who designed buildings in at least 4 continents. In 1994 Prof. Schaefer became a principal architect within Piano’s office. In 1995, Prof. Schaefer moved back to Stuttgart, where he took a position as a staff scientist at the Institute for Lightweight Structures (ILEK). Upon his return to Germany, Prof. Schaefer started his own architectural company, winning numerous prizes in architectural competitions and receiving significant awards for realized buildings. He has published more than hundred scientific papers. Prof. Schaefer was appointed as the director of the Institute of Concrete and Masonry Structures in 2006, 2007 and 2009. He serves on the advisory board “Bauforum Stahl e.V.”, and is a regular jury member of the European Research Council. In 2012 Prof. Schaefer was a visiting faculty and researcher in the Department of Civil Engineering at Virginia Tech / USA. In 2013 and 2014 Prof. Schaefer was a visiting professor at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).
