Benjamin Busch

Berlin, DE



Benjamin Busch (b. 1987) was internationally trained as an architect at the University of Kansas, Potsdam University of Applied Sciences and the University of Stuttgart. He has lived and worked in Berlin since 2011, where he leads Studio Busch, a platform for spatial practice operating between the disciplines of photography and design. As a graduate student of Raumstrategien (spatial strategies) at Weissensee School of Art, he is currently researching critical modes of architectural production within the field of spatial practice. Treating architecture as a symptom of abstract processes, his artwork and writing investigate complex fields of relations within the built environment. His recent works deal with the production of refugee housing in Germany, active and ‘passive’ border security infrastructure in Europe, memorials, historical narratives surrounding refugees and self-organized housing.
