Biography

Markus Jung is a Melbourne based urban designer, architect and academic who grew up in Italy where many of his passions for cities were born.
After graduating at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, he has worked for leading practices in the UK and Switzerland on projects of transportation, mixed-use redevelopments and urbanism. In 2005 he co-founded the architecture and urban design practice XPACE. Its work focuses on urban diversity, social and environmental responsiveness and has been widely published internationally.

In parallel to practicing, he has taught at the ETH Zurich from 2004 to 2010, at Monash University since 2011 and was a visiting professor at Southwest Jiaotong University Chengdu in 2016.
Markus’ practice led design-research explores strategies of metropolitan transformation, incorporating resources and the existing built and social fabrics as drivers for resilient growth.
He investigates hi-density housing types as important future models that address the needs of an expanding and diversified population.


Beyond these commitments, Markus is regularly invited as a speaker and visiting critic to international conferences, workshops and design review panels at Universities and organizations including RMIT, Melbourne University, University of Technology Sydney, Urban Affairs Association, Southeast University Nanjing, Bauhaus Dessau, Liverpool University and the Venice Biennale.
