After completing his architectural studies at the Vienna University of Technology, Norman worked as an architect and specialist in digital design and fabrication at Herzog & de Meuron in Basel.

During his studies he gained practical experience with UNStudio and Coophimmelb(l)au. From 2012 to 2014 he worked as a doctoral student at SEC-FCL Singapore, at the Chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication (Prof. Gramazio/Prof. Kohler) and developed material processes for robotic skyscrapers. He returned to ETH Zurich in mid-2014 and is head of the research project "Digital Mold Fabrication" at the research project "Mesh Mold" which he developed in Singapore.
