  • Architect Roland Dieterle has gained profound practical and methodical knowledge over a long period of time and over a range of experience, which largely exceeds the typical scope of an architect. With a great number of buildings and projects all over the world and for different tasks - comprising all sizes and dedications -  he gave evidence of his capability and commitment, not only to design  complex large-scale projects, but also to organise and to realize these. Thereby Roland Dieterle has immensely benefitted from his long-term design and management practice as the leading architect in a global company  - here he developed his integrated and deep understanding of sustainability issues for infrastructure, urban and building projects.  Furthermore his professional expertise profited from the cooperation with world famous architects, from versatile teaching experiences as a professor and also from his mastery gained in various craft trades prior and during his studies. Recently Roland Dieterle has developed the first of its kind academic programme ‘Smart City Solutions’ in cooperation with internationally operating Engineering and Business consultancies (Launch in 2018)
