Description

Behnisch Architekten was founded in 1989 as a branch office of Günter Behnisch‘s firm, Behnisch & Partner. The “Stadtbüro“, as this branch was called, developed under the leadership of Stefan Behnisch, and in 1991, it became an entirely independent firm, apart from Behnisch & Partner, with its own partnership structure and operations. Günter Behnisch continued to run his practice, Behnisch & Partner, until his retirement and the firm’s closure in 2005. For many years, Günter partnered with Stefan in the new office.

In 2005, after several changes in structure and name, the independent Stadtbüro adopted today`s name, Behnisch Architekten. Under Stefan Behnisch’s leadership, the firm has developed over the last 20 years into a successful international practice with offices in Stuttgart (since 1991), Los Angeles (1999-2011), Boston (since 2006), and Munich (since 2009). All three firms operate under the name of Behnisch Architekten.

The offices are managed by the firm partners, Stefan Behnisch, Robert Hoesle, Robert Matthew Noblett and Stefan Rappold..

In the firm's rich history, former partners include Günter Behnisch, Winfried Büxel, David Cook, Martin Haas, Christof Jantzen, Manfred Sabatke, Günther Schaller and Erhard Tränkner.

New Harvard science and engineering building will contain state-of-the-art maker space


Harvard University’s upcoming $1 billion, 535,000-square-foot Science and Engineering Complex will feature a 5,000-square-foot state-of-the-art Maker Space workshop, providing the Harvard community with a new node to test ideas and incubate enterprises. The space will feature high-end manufacturing and assembly workstations available to Harvard community members of all skill levels, and will be designed to encourage interaction among its’ users. The Maker Space marks Harvard’s latest addition to Allston’s rapidly-developing Western Avenue innovation corridor, following the Pagliuca Harvard Life Lab’s opening last Fall. “Allston has become a hub for innovators and entrepreneurs from across the University, and the new Maker Space will provide yet another outlet for the skill and imagination of the Harvard community,” said Harvard President Drew Faust. “We look forward to seeing the ideas of engineers, designers, artists, and so many other creators realized in the heart of our expanding campus.” “From the day those doors open, the Maker Space facilities will be a catalyst for discoveries and inventions we cannot even imagine today, said Frank Doyle, the John A. Paulson Dean of Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.


The Cihang Foundation, a philanthropic organization founded by tourism, logistics, and financial services mogul HNA Group in 2010 to broaden the company’s commitment to society and social responsibility, is providing support for the new Maker Space. Adam Tan, CEO of HNA Group, sees the Maker Space as a catalyst for creativity. “Incubation space plays a vital role in bringing enterprises to market,” Tan said. “Harvard is already a global leader in research and discovery, and the Maker Space will empower their talented community of students, faculty, and researchers to propel inventions and innovations for the benefit of all. With its gift to the Maker Space, the Cihang Foundation furthers its mission to give back and echoes HNA Group’s core values of innovation, integrity, and excellence in performance.” Construction of the new Science and Engineering Complex’s vertical steel frame is now underway following completion of the building’s foundation. The Science and Engineering Complex will open in Fall 2020. The following is a photograph of the Science and Engineering Complex construction site, courtesy Harvard:

Artists for Humanity Expansion moves forward with aerogel donation


The Artists for Humanity Expansion is moving forward with Cabot Corporation's donation of $400,000 worth of insulating aerogel. The donated aerogel will play a important role in making the Artists for Humanity Expansion Boston's first energy-positive building; upon completion, the building will generate more energy than it will use.


The donated aerogel will be used to construct the Artists for Humanity Expansion's insulated glass daylighting system. The aerogel will be used to glaze units of glass which will in turn be installed along the building's facade.


The aerogel-insulated glass will maximize the Artists for Humanity Expansion's thermal performance, contributing positively to the building's energy production. The glass will also help bring increased natural light to the building.


More information about the Artists for Humanity Expansion is posted below.
