Dietmar Feichtinger is an architect, lives in Paris and is internationally successful with his office Feichtinger Architectes. After studying architecture in Graz, he worked for renowned architects from Graz such as Eilfried Huth, Volker Giencke and Klaus Kada, before his path led him to Paris, where he has lived and worked for the past 30 years.
“As for my architecture, Graz has been extremely defining and significantly important,” says Feichtinger. For him, the “Graz School of Architecture” reflects the enthusiasm for architecture and what can be communicated with it, whether in an artistic or social approach. His most recent project in Styria expresses the values that he believes architecture should support: Three interconnected schools offer the opportunity for development and learning with and from each other.
Dietmar Feichtinger teaches at the University Paris VI – La Villette, among others. He is known for works such as the Simone de Beauvoir pedestrian bridge in Paris, the Danube University Krems or the Kunsthaus Weiz and has received many awards.
