Reinhard is Junior-Professor for Computational Architecture at Bauhaus-University Weimar and Principal Scientist at the Center for Energy at the Smart and Resilient Cities competence unit at the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) in Vienna. In addition, he acts as Co-PI in the Big Data Informed Urban Design group at the Future Cities Lab (FCL) 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 configurations with human cognition and usage of space.
Reinhard studied architecture and urban planning. He completed his PhD thesis in 2009 at the University of Karlsruhe. From 2007 - 2012 Reinhard has worked as a research assistant and appointed 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 understanding of cities by means of urban simulation and analysis techniques as well as the development of evolutionary design methods. From 2013 - 2016 Reinhard worked at the Chair of Information Architecture, ETH Zurich. In 2014 Dr. Koenig was guest professor at the Technical University Munich.
