Marc Ihle is an architectural educator, researcher and designer. Born in Barcelona (Spain) in 1981, he graduated, after abroad studies of architecture at the University of Texas at Arlington (USA), the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Seville ETSA (Spain) and the University of São Paulo FAU – USP (Brazil), with distinction under the supervision of Prof. Kathrin Aste at the University of Innsbruck (Austria) in 2012.
He currently is employed as Assistant Professor at the Institute of Experimental Architecture, where he has taught Architectural-Design-Studio and Digital-Fabrication in both Bachelor- and Master-classes. He further is conducting his own research and listed as doctoral candidate under the supervision of Prof. Marjan Colletti. Prior to his current position, he has further taught digital design methods in Landscape Architecture at the University of Liechtenstein and the University of Fine arts in Vienna with Prof. Kathrin Aste.
Apart from his academic background, he has gained practical experience in several international design offices, and more recently working as a Project Architect at LAAC-Architects in Innsbruck. He has been involved in all project stages, and a key member of Research Projects, dealing with Sustainable Infrastructures in Alpine Spaces.
His endeavour is to gain a deeper understanding of topographical diversity and natural behaviour through the Implementation of Aerial 3d Scanning Technologies, GIS-data and digital Terrain Analysis in architectural design processes, working across disciplines with the intent to find more vernacular and locally related design solutions for extreme alpine and arctic spaces in both Austria and Norway.
