DINAH-F has been founded in 2015. At the TU Darmstadt and the UPC Barcelona I have studied architecture and urbanism. After having graduated a working sojourn in Ticino - the Italian part of Switzerland - had an important influence on my work.  Through the time at Studio Bürgi of landscape architect Paolo Bürgi my perception and understanding of the urban complex has  been essentially enriched and extended. Along with a more sensuous way of designing, new perspectives have broaden my view. A grant for architects gave later the possibility to stay ten weeks in Istanbul. I had never been in Turkey before. Dealing on site with  the approach of an architect to a personally completley unknown place - in this case a complex megalopolis of many different  spatial and social scales -, this whole process has been merged into a manifold product - a city game. Have a look at the awarded result here. In addition graphic art has always been an important way of expression for me. Most of my drawings are characterized by black  ink and are developped without sketches or drafts directly on paper. The architectural background and the fine but strong design language come together into ever new projects around the topics of  a deeper perception, the exploring of the particular and the awareness of essence. If you are interested in receiving more information or for project proposals please write an e-mail to contact@dinah-f.de. DINAH-F is based in the Rheingau region in Germany close to the Rhine.
