Nikolaus Zieske has been Professor of Architecture for Design and Construction in Existing Buildings at Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen (THM) since 2002. For many years he acted as dean and vice-dean in the Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering.
Nikolaus received his diploma in architecture at Technische Universität München (TUM) preceding his studies there and at ETH Zürich in association with Fabio Reinhart and Mirsolav Sik. Starting 1993, he has been managing an architectural office together with his wife in Erfurt and later in Gießen. In 2002 he was appointed to the Association of German Architects (BDA). He worked as an assistant at Bauhaus University in Weimar and as a visiting professor at Carnegie Mellon University CMU in Pittsburgh in 2011.
Nikolaus has a wide range of experience in surveying historic buildings, both by hand and with the help of digital tools such as tachymeters, laser scanners, and photogrammetry. His research at the moment is focused on the conversion of point clouds into digitally usable architectural plans.
