What’s your most beautiful thougt/memory regarding your favourite ice cream?

The day before yesterday banana ice cream, American Academy in Berlin – best ever.


Why do you live in Berlin?

Berlin is a good location and starting point within Germany and Europe. Our staff is really inspired by the range of art and culture in Berlin. The city provides many advantages of other European cities but preserved a relaxed and uncomplicated attitude.


What are your memories of Stuttgart where you were born?

A good place to grow up at least. I went to school in Winnenden which is only 20 min away from Stuttgart by train. In the mid 1980s the new National Gallery was opened there. At that time I became interested in architecture. Stirling’s museum building was something completely different. The raptures, the pop elements, the spatial sculpture – you feel that time.


Would you choose the same profession again today and why?

Designing tie fabrics would be also very exciting, I think.
