Jürgen Mayer H. visited the University of Stuttgart 1986-1992; he completed his thesis as a Visiting Student at The Cooper Union, New York, in 1991 and then studied at Princeton University, New Jersey 1992-1994. He worked as an Assistant Professor at the Academy of Art Berlin from 1996 to 2001 and was Visiting Professor at Harvard University, Boston, in 2000. Currently he lectures as a Visiting Professor at the Academy of Art Berlin.

He founded the office J. Mayer H. architects in Berlin, focusing on the development of interfaces in architecture, Communication design and New Media. Important aspects of their projects are the employment of intelligent technology and the latest material research. Borders of space become reactive surfaces and set up a direct dialog with the user. An architectural space is created by communication and logistic technologies, where real place and the electronic net become fuse to become a unity.
