Visualisations, Architecture

About

Welcome to my personal website providing all the information you will need to know about me. My name is Wieger Meijer and I am pleased to meet you.

Architecture is capable of shaping, enhancing and assisting our society. Besides its functional aspects it can arouse emotions like music, literature and art can do. While architecture gets affected by false sustainability and economical thrift, one must not lose sight on the art of architecture. Most of the technological developments devaluate in a much greater degree than aesthetics will ever do.

My vision on future architecture brings back the essentials of the profession where the power of emotion and perception will overrule again.

Ambition

University

After starting to study mechanical engineering, my interest changed to architecture. This profession would allow me to combine my creative, artistic and technological side all at once. My shared affection in both creativity and technology lead me to combine two master-tracks. Besides Architecture, the master Building Physics and Systems thought me a lot about sustainability and simulation of building performance.

Graduation

Historical and architectural analysis, societal relevance and above all my own architectural style - where I combine classical elements into a state of the art building - all fell into place at my graduation project.
Under supervision of Prof.Dipl.-Ing. Christian Rapp
