The architect Muck Petzet is General Commissioner of the German contribution to the International Architecture Exhibition, la Biennale die Venezia 2012. With his exhibition "Reduce Reduce Recycle" he is introducing a new system of values in the context of architecture. After studying in Munich and Berlin, he initially worked with Herzog & de Meuron in Basel. He has had his own office in Munich since 1993 and runs it since 2012 in partnership with Andreas Ferstl. His many years of practical engagement with conversion strategies form the foundation for his theoretical work. He has, for instance, carried out exemplary conversion projects in the shrinking cities of Hoyerswerda and Leinefelde. Starting this autumn he will be teaching "architecture as resource" at the TU Munich.
