Since 2018, Norbert has been teaching urban design and urban theory at the Chair of Sustainable Urbanism. His research interests include conditions of asymmetric urban change, alternative forms of spatial appropriation, critical urban research, and concept formation and methods in the spatial disciplines. Together with Tasos Roidis and Mark Michaeli he led the international research and teaching project Inner-urban Landscapes, which resulted in the publication of the edited book Taking Action: Transforming Athens' Urban Landscapes in 2023. 

He is trained and registered as an architect (ARB, ByAK) and urban planner (ByAK). He studied at the Technical University of Munich, the University of East London, the London Metropolitan University/UNL (RIBA 2/3). In 2003 he founded the office zectorarchitects together with Carsten Jungfer in London and Munich. He has been involved in numerous realisations, including Dalston Roof Park and the redesign of Kavalierstrasse Dessau. zectorarchitects won 1st prize in the EUROPAN 10 competition (Dessau) and were co-winners of the EUROPAN 9 (Linz) competition. In 2020 the practice received the architecture award by the city of Munich (Förderpreis 2020 der Landeshauptstadt München).

From 2014 to 2018, he taught urban design at the Chair of Urban and Regional Planning at TUM, collaborated on the conference and publication project Porous City, conducted research on the conceptualisation of conflict and change in architecture and urbanism, and a situational analysis of a large housing estate in Munich. In 2019 he completed his doctorate with the empirically grounded, sensitising concept of the Redundant City (supervisors Prof. S. Wolfrum and Prof. J. Kühn, mentor Prof. U. Sturm). The project was awarded the Dr. Marschall Prize 2020 of the Faculty of Architecture at TUM.

From 2007 to 2012 Norbert worked at the Brandenburg University of Technology at the Chair of Design and Building Studies, where he taught in the design studio and conducted research on design education in the Bachelor of Architecture. During his time at BTU, he initiated the faculty’s cooperation with the European network OIKONET.
