Dirk Hebel is currently holding the position of the Scientific Director of the Ethiopian Institute of Architecture, Building Construction and City Development in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Before that, he taught at the Department of Architecture, ETHZ as the Director of the Master of Advanced Studies Program in Urban Design.
His research, at the Department of Architecture and the Institute of Urban Design, addresses the conceptual transfers between the human body and the contemporary city. The resulting work has been published in numerous academic journals and book publications, lately CITIES OF CHANGE: ADDIS ABABA with Marc Angélil and BATHROOM UNPLUGGED with Jörg Stollmann. Several of his Design-Research-Studios with international students from Bachelor to Master Level won international recognition. In this line, together with Marc Angélil, he published in 2008 the book DEVIATIONS, an experiment in architectural design pedagogy to initiate a plea for a new type of architectural practice.
Projects include the award winning project UNITED_BOTTLE, the international traveling exhibition "INVENTIONEERING ARCHITECTURE" and the pneumatic installation "ON_AIR" in Berlin. In 2007 UNITED_BOTTLE received the Van Alen Institute Fellowship Award, the Red Dot Design Award for Best Conceptual Design and the LANXESS Award Singapore.
