Welcome to new Assistant Professor Marc SchulitzMarc received his professional Degree in Architecture from the ETH Zurich in Switzerland in 1999 and has since then worked as an architect in Europe. He has three years studio and lecture teaching experience at the Technical University of Brunswick and has continuously served as a design critic at universities in Germany and Austria.
Marc Schulitz is a licensed architect in Germany and partner at the award winning firm of Schulitz Architekten GmbH. He was in charge of numerous international sports arena projects, including the 2006 FIFA World Cup Arena in Hanover and the Lentpark ice and swim stadium in Cologne, Germany. His work has been featured in international periodicals and books. Schulitz’s firm focuses on delivering designs that are environmentally sustainable in terms of architecture, the integration of building services, and engineering. His Lentpark design was the first ice sports facility to be part of the European Union’s Green Building Program. Mr. Schulitz´s precise knowledge of structural principles has enabled him to move beyond the role of designer and push into the realm of engineering, thus leading him to work closely with internationally renowned engineering firms.
In 2013 the Lentpark project was awarded the IOC/IAKS Award in bronze. The award is sponsored by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS). It is the most important international architecture award for sports, leisure and recreational facilities.
