Prof., Architect
Johan Bettum is professor of architecture, the programme director of the Städelschule Architecture Class as well as vice-dean of the Städelschule. He has taught and lectured, amongst other places, at the AA, UCLA, the Berlage Institute, Innsbruck University, the EPFL, Lausanne and Oslo School of Architecture.

Bettum studied at the Architectural Association (AA) after gaining a BA with a major in biology from Princeton University. He was a research fellow at the Oslo School of Architecture from 1997-2001 and headed a nationally funded research project on polymer composite materials in architecture. Until 2000 he led the OCEAN group in Oslo whose work on polymer composites and advanced digital modelling greatly influenced the group's projects in this period.

Bettum's PhD is entitled 'The Material Geometry of Fibre-Reinforced Polymer Matrix Composites and Architectural Tectonics'. His experimental practice, ArchiGlobe, explores related small-scale projects.
