Architect and Engineer at the intersection of architectural design, lightweight structures & geometry

Günther H. Filz (born 1973, Austria) is an architect and engineer. He has been Assoc. Professor at the University of Innsbruck, Austria and Professor in Structures and Architecture at Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland.

He received his Diploma degree (2000) in Architecture with distinction from the University of Innsbruck and worked amongst others for Eisenman Architects, NYC. Günther completed his Doctorate in Architecture with distinction from the University of Innsbruck and was appointed Assistant Professor in 2010. He also holds a Master degree in Engineering with distinction from Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, Germany. Since 2015, he has also been member of the Bundesingenieurkammer Deutschland. From 2013 to 2017 he has been Vice-Dean and Dean of Studies at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Innsbruck. In 2015 he completed his tenure track period and was promoted Associate Professor. Dr. Günther Filz has been appointed Professor of Structures and Architecture at the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture and at the School of Engineering on 19 December 2016.

Günther H. Filz has been internationally invited Visiting Professor, lecturer and workshop instructor. Besides his studio work, his numerous research pavilions and other scientific/artistic achievements have been widely published, exhibited and awarded. Günther H. Filz is editor and author of innumerable scientific papers, articles and books. His research and teaching centers on the intersection of architecture, structure and geometry.

His interest has especially been on the profound changes that selforganizing forms and processes instigate in the way architecture is thought, designed and built. His “fat-free-design” approach results in intelligent, innovative and sustainable lightweight structures.
