Jürgen Mayer H: re:activators
Thursday, 6 November, 19h, Aula

Alle Veranstaltungen der Architekturklasse finden in englischer Sprache statt.

Jürgen Mayer H, one of Germany's leading, young architects, returns to Städelschule to lecture on his work that frequently touches on issues related to art and design at large.

Since establishing his office in 1995, Jürgen Mayer H has produced a wide range of objects and buildings, from interior panels, furniture and sculpture, to exhibition installations and large private and public buildings. In the work, Mayer H focuses on the intersection of architecture, communication and new technology. "From urban planning schemes and buildings to installation work and objects with new materials," Mayer H says, "the relationship between the human body, technology and nature form the background for a new production of space."
This focus has led to remarkable results, frequently praised by critics and cherished on the international architecture scene. Mayer H's Stadthaus Scharnhauser Park
und Marktplatz (1998-2002) is an extraordinary early design and won international interest and acclaim; models and drawings of the project have been collected by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Recent projects include the Town Hall in Ostfildern, Germany, a student center at Karlsruhe University and the redevelopment of the Plaza de la Encarnacion in Sevilla, Spain.

Jürgen Mayer H. studied at Stuttgart University, The Cooper Union and at Princeton Universtiy. His work has been published and exhibited worldwide and is part of international collections like the MoMA New York and SF MoMA. Among the prizes and awards won are the Mies-van-der-Rohe-Award 2003 Emerging Architect and Winner Holcim Awards 2005 Bronze Europe for Metropol Parasol. Jürgen Mayer H. has taught at Princeton University, University of the Arts Berlin, Harvard University, Kunsthochschule Berlin, the Architectural Association in London and is currently teaching at Columbia University in New York.
