Dieter Janssen is an architect based in Toronto, working collaboratively with other designers, architects, engineers and artists. As an architect, exploring photography has presented an opportunity for both understanding form & phenomena, as well as offer a view toward the cultural dimension of how people engage with spaces, remake and are remade by them through their occupation. That a space can have many characters while remaining effectively constant - as though with multiple personalities - is part of this toolkit for Architecture. The camera offers a means for capturing & fabricating those characters.
Janssen holds a B.Arch (Hons) from the University of Toronto, and an M.Arch from Princeton University. He has practiced as an architect, educator and photographer in Canada, Cuba, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Guatemala, Mexico, Norway, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the US, Iceland and Israel.
