Lorenzo De Chiffre
Lorenzo De Chiffre studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and the University of East London. He worked as project manager at Caruso St John Architects in London and worked at BEHF Architects und Werner Neuwirth in Vienna, where he was primarily involved with larger residential construction projects. In 2016, he graduated after writing his dissertation about the Viennese Terrassenhaus [terraced house]. In 2017, he curated the exhibition „The Terrassenhaus. A Viennese Fetish?“ in the Architekturzentrum Wien. Both in teaching and research, his focus lies on architectural design strategies. In 2018, he co-published a book on the topic, entitled Ikonen. Methodische Experimente im Umgang mit architektonischen Referenzen [Icons. Methodical experiments in dealing with architectural references]. That same year he was awarded the Best Teaching Award for his work at the Faculty of Architecture and Planning at the TU Wien.
