Phelan Heinsohn


Phelan grew up in Berlin, Germany. Alongside studying for his BSc in architecture at TU Vienna he always tried to keep one foot in reality by working in various offices such as feld72, Coop Himmelb(l)au and OMA. Despite that he likes being involved with academia as well: he worked as tutor for descriptive geometry at the Institute for Discrete Mathematics and Geometry at the Technical University – which basically meant teaching microstation – and went to take on a more serious occupation as a study assistant at the department of building construction and design in his final year in Vienna. It is the integration of practice and academia that drove him towards the LSA.
