Anna Heringer is a Professor of Practice at the LSA

Anna Heringer will teach again at the School of Architecture starting from the summer semester of 2024. She has been intermittently teaching as a lecturer for design at the university since the summer semester of 2019, and now, following a successful selection process, she has been appointed as a practical professor for two semesters.

Anna Heringer is an architect and a pioneer in contemporary earthen construction. She became known for the construction of the METI School in Rudrapur, Bangladesh, which she designed and implemented as her diploma thesis. Since then, Heringer has further developed her award-winning architectural approach, which is based on local building materials and labor, through projects primarily in Asia, Africa, and through architectural education in Stuttgart, Linz, Vienna, and ETH Zurich. Her central concern is to gradually establish and clarify social and economic connections in the planning and construction process through the personal commitment of the architect. Her works have been exhibited in numerous museums worldwide, such as the MoMA New York and the Venice Biennale. She has received awards including the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, AR Emerging Architects Award, and the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture. UNESCO awarded her an honorary professorship for "Earthen Architecture, Building Cultures, and Sustainable Development."

Anna Heringer is distinguished by her high international visibility and renowned buildings worldwide. The University of Liechtenstein can strengthen a strategically important field in the development of buildings with sustainable materials through her expertise.
