Florian Boehm is a research assistant at the Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics of the Berlin University of Technology (TU Berlin). His current work focuses on knowledge engineering and integration in aviation processes and aeronautical systems. Mr. Boehm studied architecture and aeronautical engineering and graduated with a Dipl.-Ing. (academically qualified engineer) degree in aeronautics and astronautics from TU Berlin. He is especially interested in the integration of rational and creative design methods in the two disciplines. As a tutor in TU Berlin’s Architectural Department, he has developed courses for the introduction of computer graphics and animation in the early stages of the curriculum. He founded an interdisciplinary group at the Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics for the design of unconventional aircraft and aerostats. For a large aerospace company in Germany, he developed navigation and flight control systems. Since 1991, Mr. Boehm has written regularly for the architectural magazine ARCH+. In it and other journals, he has published several articles on architectural and aeronautical topics.
