As a designer, Maja has worked with Peter Kogler, tnE Architects, Chalabi Architects, and Cmmnwlth before joining Asymptote Architecture New York, where she worked on a range of high-profile international projects. As an educator, she has taught with Lise Anne Couture at Columbia University's GSAPP, Peter Trummer at the Institute for Urban Design (IOUD) in Innsbruck, and since 2012, with Greg Lynn at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.

Maja's investigative interests, manifested in writing, teaching, and design work, focus on the construction of realities at the intersection of the virtual and physical realm, interrogating contemporary “ways of seeing” recalibrated by digital media and design technologies and expressed in the design of space and architecture.
