He was also in charge of the design of the Austrian Pavilion for the Expo 2017 in Astana/Kazakhstan, in the context of which he realized an interactive installation, for which he received the Red Dot Award for “Communication Design” in 2018. Most recently, he has developed a museum’s quarter for the city of Ostrava and designed the „House of Austrian History“ in Vienna´s Hofburg. His projects also include: Museum of Literature at the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, permanent exhibition Salzburg Museum, permanent exhibition Volkskundemuseum Graz, archaeological museum in Schloss Eggenberg – Universalmuseum Joanneum Graz.
