Reinhard König studied architecture and urban planning. He completed his PhD thesis in 2009 at the University of Karlsruhe. From 2007 - 2012 Dr. König has worked as a research assistant and ap-pointed Interim Professor of the Chair for Computer Science in Architecture at Bauhaus-University Weimar. He heads research projects on the complexity of urban systems and societies, the under-standing of cities by means of urban simulation and analysis techniques as well as the development of evolutionary design methods. From 2013 - 2016 Reinhard König worked at the Chair of Infor-mation Architecture, ETH Zurich. In 2014 Dr. König was guest professor at the Technical University Munich. From 2015 he is Junior-Professor for Computational Architecture at Bauhaus-University Weimar and from 2016 he is Senior Researcher at the Center for Energy at the Sustainable Build-ings and Cities unit at the Austrian Institute of Technology in Vienna. In addition, he acts as Co-PI in the Big Data Informed Urban Design group at the Future Cities Lab at the Singapore ETH Centre. His current research interests are applicability of multi-criteria optimisation techniques for planning synthesis, cognitive design computing and correlations of computed measures of spatial configura-tions with human cognition and usage of space.
