Early life

Andreas Vogler was raised in Basel, Switzerland. After several semesters of studies in Art History and Literature, Vogler worked as an interior designer with Alinea AG in Basel. In 1988–1994 he studied architecture at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule) in Zurich spending one exchange semester at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence (RISD) in the United States and graduated with a diploma project for an energy-independent, pre-fabricated Weather Station on the Weissfluhjoch/Arosa.


In 1995 he worked for Ingenhoven Architekten Christoph Ingenhoven in Düsseldorf, and from 1995 to 1996 for Richard Horden Associates, now Horden Cherry Lee Architects in London. Later he became teaching and research assistant at the institute of Professor Richard Horden at the Technical University of Munich until 2002. There he was teaching microarchitecture and initiated and led several design studios for aerospace architecture, focusing on habitability on board the International Space Station, and on studies for future habitats on Mars together with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA. The students involved were able to test their prototypes in parabolic test flights at NASA Johnson Space Center. During the time at the Technical University of Munich Vogler published several papers about space architecture and submitted several prize-winning architectural competitions. In 2003–2005 he worked as Guest Professor at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen researching on prefabricated housing. In 2004 he taught at The University of Hong Kong. In 2005- 2006 he was part of the Concept House research group at the Delft University of Technology.

Vogler has spoken at numerous international conferences on the topics of aerospace architecture and technology transfer to architecture and sustainability in architecture. He organized international conference sessions and led workshops on a variety of related themes. In 2008 he and Vittori taught an undergraduate course in Industrial Design at the University of Rome La Sapienza and the University Iuav of Venice. He is a member of the Bavarian Chamber of Architects (ByAK- Bayerische Architektenkammer), the Deutscher Werkbund, and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Architecture and Vision

In 2002 Vogler started to collaborate with the Italian architect, Arturo Vittori, with whom he founded in 2003 Architecture and Vision, an international and multidisciplinary studio working in architecture and design, engaged in the development of innovative solutions and technology transfer between diverse fields for aerospace and terrestrial applications. In 2006, a prototype of the extreme environment tent, DesertSeal (2004), became part of the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, after being featured in SAFE: Design Takes on Risk (2005), curated by Paola Antonelli. In the same year, the Museum of Science and Industry Chicago selected Vogler and Vittori as "Modern-day Leonardo's" for its Leonardo da Vinci: Man, Inventor, Genius exhibition. In 2007, a model of the inflatable habitat MoonBaseTwo (2007), developed to allow long-term exploration on the Moon, was acquired for the collection of the Museum of Science and Industry Chicago in Chicago while MarsCruiserOne (2007), the design for a pressurized laboratory rover for human Mars exploration, was shown at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, as part of the exhibition "Airs de Paris" (2007).

Andreas Vogler Studio

In January 2014, Vogler independently formed the Andreas Vogler Studio, an international and multidisciplinary firm working in architecture, transportation, and design located in Munich, Germany. Andreas Vogler Studio with the German Aerospace Center DLR, participated in the GB Railway's "Tomorrow's Train Design Today" transportation competition, and was named a finalist on April 8, 2015. AEROLINER 3000 follows the consequent application of lightweight thinking into the train world. The development of a combination of many singular elements concerning aerodynamics, locomotion, structure, interactive control systems and even passenger psychology will be orchestrated under the umbrella of a modern design and engineering culture informed by consequent lightweight thinking.
