Torsten Lange is postdoctoral assistant at the Guest Lectureship for the Theory of Architecture at ETH Zurich. He received his Diploma in Architecture from the Bauhaus University Weimar and his Master in Architectural History from the Bartlett School of Architecture/UCL, and earned his Ph.D. with the thesis “Komplexe Umweltgestaltung [complex environmental design]: architectural theory and the production of the built environment in the GDR, 1960–1990” (UCL, 2015). His research focuses on postwar architecture and urbanism, especially in socialist European countries, and examines theories of production, labor, and materiality as well as alternative forms of architectural practice. His work has been published in ARCH+, archimaera, The Journal of Architecture, and East Central Europe, and in edited volumes such as Industries of Architecture (Routledge, 2016). He is co-editor of the three-volume publication East West Central: Re-Building Europe, 1950–1990 (Birkhäuser, 2017).
