During his studies he was granted two Scholarships in Japan, enabling him to work with Arata Isozaki in Tokyo in 1993 and in 1994 for his Diploma Thesis, again in Tokyo, with Tom Heneghan serving as a Tutor. Markus was subsequently invited back to Tokyo by Fumihiko Maki in 1995.

From 1995 to 2002, he was employed by Zaha Hadid in London as a director, project director, project architect and designer for such projects as; Landesgartenschau Germany, Ski Jump Austria, Contemporary Arts Center Ohio and the Vista Master plan Singapore, among many others.
