Stern’s Traveling Fellowship (2019) which enabled him to pursue fieldwork in Eastern Europe.

Before starting his doctoral research, Radu Remus was the Architectural Activism Fellow at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee where he taught design studios and a history and theory seminar which investigated how material culture and social phenomena enable architectures in a state of flux. Prior to his academic appointments, Radu Remus worked for various international architecture practices, most notably at Diller Scofidio + Renfro (New York City, USA), Herzog & de Meuron (Basel, Switzerland) and Dogma (Brussels, Belgium). He has also recently consulted the United Nations Human Settlements Organization (Nairobi, Kenya) on inclusive and sustainable urban regeneration.
