After civil service Jörg decided to learn traditional craft under a master instead of going straight to architecture school.
While doing an internship at a biological research center in Madagascar he participated in the discovery of the Golden Bamboo Lemur. There was the first time he got exposed to the giant bamboos within the forest.
Later he retook his vocation for carpentry and structures but with a strong focus on fighting against the import of tropical timber.
