Four internationally renowned architects, grouped as ‘Neuer Werkbund Killesberg’, developed their individual architectural concepts based on a masterplan by Ackermann & Raff und Projekt GmbH. Joining together in this way, their working practices reflect the tradition of the architects of Stuttgart’s Weissenhofsiedlung. The architects within this group are: KCAP Architects&Planners (Rotterdam/Zurich), David Chipperfield Architects (Berlin/London), Ortner & Ortner Baukunst (Berlin/Vienna) and Baumschlager Eberle (Lochau/Vorarlberg). In addition, the multi-functional SCENARIO-building by Barkow Leibinger Architekten (Berlin) belongs to the developments on Killesberg.

Barkow Leibinger is an American/ German architectural practice based in Berlin and New
York and was founded in 1993 by Frank Barkow and Regine Leibinger.
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 Gate House
and the Campus Restaurant in Ditzingen, Germany and the TRUTEC Building in Seoul.
Recently completed buildings include the Tour Total office high-rise in Berlin, the HAWE
factory complex in Kaufbeuren, a multi-use extension for the Aufbau Haus in Berlin and the
Fellows Pavilion for the American Academy 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.
Their work has been shown at the Architecture Biennale Venice 2008 and 2014, the
Marrakech Biennale 2012, the Serpentine Architecture Programme 2016 in London
and is included in the permanent collections of MoMA, New York, and the Deutsches
