I lead the global Building Envelope Design practice at Arup. I have established a range of specialist disciplines in the Berlin office where I am based, including lighting design, fire engineering, building physics, acoustics, material consulting and architecture. I first joined Arup’s Façade Engineering team in London in 2000.

My background includes working for architects and large engineering practices in the UK, Germany and the US. Prior to joining Arup I was a lecturer in façade engineering at the Faculty of Architecture, Hochschule der Wissenschaften in Holzminden and was Guest Professor teaching building services at the RWTH Aachen.

In 2014 Rudi I was honoured to be made an Arup Fellow.
