Former Assistant Director and Coordinator of the 4.TU Centre of Ethics and Technology.
Stefan Koller holds a B.A.Hons. degree in Philosophy and Modern Languages from the University of Oxford; a BPhil. (MA equivalent) degree in Philosophy, also University of Oxford; and a PhD degree (cum laude) from the Technical University of Delft.
His doctoral thesis, The Birth of Ethics from the Spirit of Tectonics, was on the ethics of architecture. The thesis established conditions under which ascriptions of moral value to buildings are meaningful, true, and justified (when they are). The thesis tested these conditions against a variety of case studies from historic buildings to modernist and contemporary architecture. Contemporary case studies included a forensic clinic outside Munich, and an (unrealized) opera house in The Hague.
