Kerstin Spiekermann is an architect who graduated with a MSc. in Architecture from ETH Zurich in 2020. During her studies, she focused on methods to increase sustainability in construction. Her projects included a compostable hotel under the guidance of Prof. Dirk Hebel, with materials such as bamboo, algae, mussels and mushrooms. A second project was a housing construction led by Prof. Elli Mosayebi using cheap timber, which through designed maintenance of the entire structure with oil, could last eternally. Kerstin also took part in a summer school by Prof. Roger Boltshauser in 2019 to prefabricate a rammed earth pavilion.
Kerstin was a Research Intern at the Block Research Group in 2021 and worked on the Knitnervi Ultralight Pavilion at the MAXXI in Rome.
