Curriculum Vitae

[Prof. Dr.-Ing., Architect & Author, Architektenkammer Berlin, Werkbund Berlin, Reiseuni_lab,]

Dagmar Jäger is an architect, author and lecturer, living and working in Berlin. Since 1998, she has been a lecturer, guest critic and visiting professor at universities like UdK Berlin, BTU Cottbus or UAL Lisbon, TUT Tallinn and University Innsbruck. Her focus is on research by design in theory and practice to investigate, reflect and experiment architectural design methods, collective strategies, interdisciplinary cooperation and dialogue-based design processes.

Since 1994, she has conducted experimental projects together with her partner Christian Pieper in their network studio jp3 (Berlin), to develop sustainable concepts of transformation for neglected or forgotten buildings, sites and landscapes – young & 'difficult' heritage with social and political relevance, while implementing strategies of re-use, re-activation and re-interpretation. Outcomes and results of these cooperative activities include concepts, texts, books, photography, exhibitions, conferences and public talks in multidisciplinary contexts.
