People in design: Wolfgang Rieder appointed Loeb Fellow at Harvard
The Austrian Rieder Group has cooperated with architects, designers and artists for many years in the application and further development of its glass fibre concrete. The company also promotes the sustainable development of concrete as a product. This commitment has resulted in the appointment of Wolfgang Rieder, Managing Director of the Rieder Group, as Loeb Fellow at the Harvard University of Design. Rieder is the first producer to receive this honour. In keeping with the direction of his own company, Rieder wants to use his new position at Harvard to illuminate the current research discourse in the relationship between manufacturing industry and architects and to emphasise the shared responsibility for sustainable construction.
