Behnisch Architekten

Behnisch Architekten was founded in 1989 and works out of three offices, directed by Stefan Behnisch and his partners Robert Hösle (Munich), Robert Matthew Noblett (Boston) and Stefan Rappold (Stuttgart). Established as a branch office of Günter Behnisch’s practice Behnisch & Partner, the Stuttgart office became independent in 1991 and has subsequently developed into an international practice with offices in Stuttgart, Los Angeles (1999-2011), Boston (since 2006) and Munich (since 2009).

Behnisch Architekten Breaks Ground on Cancer Research Center in Switzerland

Behnisch Architekten has announced the groundbreaking of the AGORA—Cancer Research Center located in Lausanne, Switzerland within sight of Lake Geneva. As the new home of the Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research (ISREC), the Center will bring together 400 researchers, scientists, doctors, and clinicians under the goal of enhanced communication.

The new AGORA building will connect to an existing building on one side, with minimal disruptions to existing programming. “Visual relationships both on the site and to the landscape beyond require a carefully defined building mass and the new building responds sensitively to these site conditions while sculpturally standing out from its heterogeneous surroundings.”

While Eliel and Eero Saarinen may be the most well known father-son architect duo, they are certainly not the only pair to have left their mark in the field. As far back as the 1700s, the Gabriel father and son dynasty (Jacques V and Ange-Jacques) constructed much of Versailles, and more recently both I.M. Pei and Lewis Davis have passed their legacy onto their sons. In honor of Father's Day, we look at four father-son architecture dynasties and their lasting influence on the profession, after the break.

New Taipei City Museum of Art Proposal / Behnisch Architekten

04:00 - 2 September, 2011

The principle behind the design by Behnisch Architekten for the new Contemporary Art Museum is for art to be experienced through a multitude of perspectives and perceptions. Art is not an isolated experience. Views change, rooms change and thus perception is altered. In order for art to take on a lifestyle quality it needs to be accessible. Contemporary art should be able to be viewed from the outside in, from across the landscape, from above, from below and through a series of lenses, both visual and cultural. More images and architects’ description after the break.
