When Matthias is not on the road for Ticket B, he works for the Berlin Senate in the Department for Urban Development, Construction and Housing, where he has a coordinating role in the handling of construction projects for the state of Berlin. Before that, for eight years he was part of an architectural office in Kreuzberg working on various public and private commissions and competitions. Matthias very much appreciates dealing with building culture and architectural topics. He sees his work for Ticket B as a way of making these topics accessible to a wider public while telling the stories behind the façades. His favourite tour is the “Cut through the Inner City” because this tour gives a great overview of the diversity of the city of Berlin – highlighting urban development issues, architectural ideas, and the political and social dimensions of the last 40 years. He sees his tours as a dialogue and is happy when questions and suggestions come from the group so that an exchange takes place.
