After studying in Kiel, Potsdam and London, the graduate engineer and Master of Architecture has worked in architectural offices in Vienna, Berlin, London and Beijing (China) since 2004.
From 2011 to 2020, Takasaki-Lauw was a research assistant at Leibniz Universität Hannover at the Institute for Design and Building Theory and at the same time a lecturer for "Digital Design" at TU Braunschweig at the Institute for Architectural Design.
Since 2012 he has been working as a freelance architect with the architectural practice Takasaki Lauw Architects and since 2017 as founder and partner of the practice Busch & Takasaki Architekten BDA. Prof. Takasaki-Lauw can look back on several nationally and internationally renowned competition successes and exhibitions.
He sees the focus of his academic work in "integrative and cooperative, heterogeneous as well as sustainable housing and urban development". This is also addressed in his publications "Future: Housing - Migration as an Impulse for the Cooperative City" (2017) and "Refugees Welcome - Concepts for a Humane Architecture" (2015). Getting his students excited about this topic beyond imparting specialist knowledge is one of his goals in teaching at our university.
