GERMANY
Arno Brandlhuber is an architect and urban designer, and founder of Berlin based, Brandlhuber+. Brandlhuber’s cultural practice reaches beyond architecture and urbanism in order to politicise issues of private and collective property, sustainable economy and social cooperation.

BeL was founded in 2000 by Anne-Julchen Bernhardt and Jörg Leeser. Anne-Julchen Bernhardt (*1971) is an architect and professor at the RWTH Aachen University for building typologies. Jörg Leeser (*1967) is an architect based in Cologne and professor at Wuppertal University and is now Professor of Urban Context at PBSA Düsseldorf.

SWITZERLAND
Over the last two decades, a broad range of commissions has given shape to Christ & Gantenbein‘s growing body of work. Award-winning projects such as the renovations and extensions to the Kunstmuseum in Basel (2016) and the Swiss National Museum in Zurich (2016), as well as the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum in Cologne (ongoing) have strengthen the office‘s expertise in the development of museum buildings. Housing schemes in Paris and Germany, as well as the Lindt Chocolate Competence Centre in Switzerland are, among others, currently on the drawing board.

Sauter von Moos is an architecture studio established in Basel, Switzerland, in 2010, by Florian Sauter and Charlotte von Moos. The studio engages in work on all scales, both in theory and practice. Aiming for places of authenticity, their architecture of the in-between seeks for unique spatial responses to each specific task and situation with the goal to create discrete backgrounds for life.

This event is part of the EUROPA– Connecting Ideas Across Borders talks series.
