Academic Career and Research Areas

Prof. Nagler's research explores the relationship between design and construction and the direct translation of analytical studies into concrete designs. At its core, his work investigates the material presence of things. It revolves around the issue of “simple construction” in an effort to reduce complexity.
After training as a carpenter, Prof. Nagler studied architecture at the University of Kaiserslautern. Visiting and acting professorships took him to the University of Wuppertal, the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen and the Hochschule für Technik in Stuttgart. Prof. Nagler is a founding member of the Bundesstiftung Baukultur foundation. Since 2010, he has been a member of the Academy of the Arts, Berlin – Architecture section, and the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts.
