DIRK KROLIKOWSKI Dipl.-Ing. Arch (Dist.)
Dirk studied architecture at the RWTH Aachen University Germany and the University of Washington USA. He graduated with distinction.

After working for practices in Germany and the UK he joined Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners when it was Richard Rogers Partnership in 2005 and was made an Associate in 2007.
Dirk mantains a particular interest in the relationship between architecture and engineering in terms of achieving an interdisciplinary approach to design. He has pioneered the application of advanced modeling tools and the implementation of new digital design tools such as advanced BIM across the practice as well as its use by large multidisciplinary project teams.
As an Adjunct Professor, he has been teaching his own unit at RWTH Aachen University where he explored the implementation of new technologies into design and fabrication with support of ARUP, AIRBUS and other industry leaders.
