Georg Vrachliotis graduated from the School of Architecture, Media and Design at the Berlin University of Arts. Georg studied also at the Institute of Philosophy, Theory of Science and History of Science and Technology, at the Technical University Berlin, but completed his diploma degree in architecture. As an architect Georg gained working experience in various architectural offices. To established his interest in linking architecture to theory and history of science and technology, he collaborated with researchers from disciplines, such as history of arts, geography, mathematics, artificial intelligence, philosophy or cognitive science. As an architectural reviewer he is involved in various projects and has been visiting researcher at the University of Bremen, the University of Freiburg, and the University of California at Berkeley. leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer   Georg received several research fellowships, conference scholarships and travel grants, e.g. from the Stanford University Spring Symposium, the ETH Erich-Degen Foundation or the ETH Faculty of Architecture. Since 2003 Georg holds a position as a research associate and teaching assistant at the Chair for Computer-Aided Architectural Design ETH Zurich, where he is working, teaching and publishing on architecture theory, history and theory of technology and science in architecture, as well as design theory.
Currently, he holds a position as a guest lecturer at the Department for Architecture Theory, Technical University Vienna. In 2007 he founded together with Oliver Schürer the research cooperation Technik & Theorie.
