Barkow Leibinger is an American / German architectural practice founded in 1993 by Frank Barkow and Regine Leibinger and based in Berlin and New York.
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,exhibitions and installations in the public realm internationally. Important milestones are amongst others the Biosphere in Potsdam, Germany, the Customer and Administration Building, the Gate House and the Campus Restaurant in Ditzingen, Germany, the Trutec Building in Seoul and the Tour Total office high-rise in Berlin.
Their discursive research-based approach to architecture and design allows the 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 as a continuously evolving activity. This focus revolves around a commitment to academic teaching, research and the practice itself - each are autonomous work-areas, which simultaneously inform each other beneficially. This is an approach that distinguishes each project as distinct in relationship to client/architect dialogue, location, aesthetics, and purpose.
Barkow Leibinger’s work has been shown at the Architecture Biennale Venice 2008 and 2014, at the Marrakech Biennale 2012 and is included in the permanent collections of MoMA, New York, and the Deutsches Architektur Museum, Frankfurt. They have won three National AIA Honor Awards for Architecture and the prestigious Marcus Prize for Architecture, Milwaukee, recognizing emerging talent in the field for design excellence and innovation, as well a Global Holcim Innovation Award for sustainability.
