  • "We are trained with a unique skillset that is also needed outside of our industry. We combine business with creativity. We combine history with a future vision. We combine craftsmanship with cutting edge technology. We are strategic dreamers."
    Chris Precht
    Founder Studio Precht & Pends
  • "Surround yourself with those who complement you and those who can help make a project grow. The team is much more important than the idea"
    Maria Ruiz Pardo
    Founder & Director AtelierMEL
  • "We’re an events and experience design company as much as we’re a physical design company. We are inventors of experiences."
    Martin Barry
    Founder Manifesto.City & reSITE
  • "Certainly, the next great step will be the integration of artificial intelligence into the planning processes and that
    will bring new solutions in terms of optimization."
    Alexander Rieck
    Co-Founder & Director LAVA
  • "The architect, as the generalist, is maybe the diplomat whose task it is to negotiate the deal. One could even say the architect is the glue!"
    Prof. Tobias Wallisser
    Co-Founder & Director LAVA
  • "In my view, BIM will become so entangled into the profession that it will become harder for practitioners to even perceive it as unique or revolutionary."
    Sherif Abdelmohsen
    Co-Founder BIMMUNITY
  • "The most important thing is to build a solid network early."
    Artem Kuchukov
    CEO & Co-Founder KEWAZO
