Before that, he worked as a researcher at the Chair of Sustainable Construction KIT Karlsruhe and the Future Cities Laboratory Singapore and as a Visiting Professor for Structural Design at the GUtech Oman. He graduated in Civil Engineering from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (previously TH Karlsruhe) in 1999. Working for different renowned engineering offices, he specialized in the fields of lightweight, membrane and glass structures. His portfolio comprises various projects, among others the membrane and steel roof construction of Parkstad-Limburg-Stadium, the inflated and dynamic pavilion structure Nouvelle DestiNation for the Expo 02 in Switzerland, the suspended “take-off” object for BMW at Munich Airport and the hanging façade structure of the Audi Lounge building in Neckarsulm.

In 2003 Karsten Schlesier joined KIT Karlsruhe, working as a Research Associate at the Institute for Structural Design (Institut für Tragkonstruktionen). He played a key role in the implementation of several student design projects, realized as temporary pavilions on festival sites. Between 2008 and 2011 Karsten Schlesier joined Addis Ababa University as a Visiting Professor, holding the Chair of Structural Design together with his Ethiopian counterpart Wondimu Kassa at the Ethiopian Institute of Architecture, Building Construction and City Development as of 2009. There, he initiated tests and experimental designs for a new bamboo composite material used as an alternative high-strength building material. His research resulted in the commission for the official Southern Nations pavilion at the 2010 Ethiopian Cities Day in Awassa, which was realized as a design-to-build project with students of the EiABC and local craftsmen. Between 2014 and 2017 he worked as an Associate Professor for structural design and building construction at the German University of Technology in Oman.
