Approach

Barkow Leibinger is an American/German architectural practice based in Berlin and New York, founded in 1993 by Frank Barkow and Regine Leibinger.

 

Their discursive research-based approach to architecture and design allows Barkow Leibinger’s work to respond to advancing knowledge and technology, locating the practice as an international leader in digital and analogue fabrication techniques. This know-how expands to include new materials and their applications in driving the practice forward, a continuously evolving activity. The office’s focus revolves around a commitment to academic teaching, research and the practice itself — each are autonomous work areas, which simultaneously inform one another. This approach manifests distinctly in each project through the interrelationships within client-architect dialogue, location, aesthetics, and purpose.


Barkow Leibinger’s work is realized over a wide range of scales and building types including building for workplace (industry, office, and master planning), cultural, housing, event spaces, as well as exhibitions and installations in the public realm internationally. Recently completed buildings include the Trumpf Smart Factory in Chicago, the Fellows Pavilion for the American Academy in Berlin, the HAWE Factory Kaufbeuren and the Tour Total office high-rise in Berlin.

 

Their work was included in the Serpentine Summer House program 2016 in London and will be shown in the 2nd Chicago Architecture Biennial 2017. It was also shown in the 4th Marrakech Biennale, the 14th and the 11th Architecture Biennale, Venice, and is housed in the permanent collections of MoMA, New York, and the Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Frankfurt. They have won four National AIA Honor Awards for Architecture and a Global Holcim Innovation Award for sustainability as well as various German architecture awards.
