Häring was born in Biberach an der Riß, in the Kingdom of Württemberg. A student of the great Theodor Fischer, he took the view that each building should be uniquely developed according to the specific demands of the site and client. Few of Häring’s designs were built but he was a strong influence on his friend and colleague Hans Scharoun.

Häring was married to actress Emilia Unda in 1918. The couple would later divorce and he would marry actress Roma Bahn in 1950. He died in Göppingen, aged 76.
