Dirk was leading the chair "Informatik in der Architektur (InfAR)" from 1993 on. He was an enthusiastic teacher, researcher and mentor. His passion about computer aided design methods and evidence based & human centred design processes has inspired many students, teachers and researchers in the field of architecture, urbanism and computer aided design. 

The two institutes (EiABC & Bauhaus-Universität Weimar) were connected through him when he was a DAAD professor at EiABC. He also initiated and took the lead of establishing the joint research and teaching lab between the two institutes, Emerging City Lab Addis Ababa (ECL-AA). We are forever thankful of all his efforts.
