Arno Brandlhuber

Arno Brandlhuber works as an Architect and Urban Planner.
He studied Architecture and Urbansim at the TU Darmstadt and the Accademia del Arte in Florence.

From 1992 on he initiated several project- and office partnerships. During this period numerous projects and publications were realized, including the projects Neanderthal Museum (Mettmann, 1996), Kölner Brett (Cologne, 2000), and Crystal (Copenhagen, 2006).

In 2006, he founded brandlhuber+ as an architecture office dedicated to the idea of collaboration with other practices, discplines, and individuals. Expanding on the idea of collaboration, he started the ongoing practice of Brandlhuber+ Emde, Burlon with Markus Emde and Thomas Burlon, based in Berlin since 2009. Together they built projects such as Brunnenstrasse 9 (Berlin, 2009), the Antivilla (Krampnitz, 2014), and St. Agnes (Berlin, 2015). They are currently working on LoBe, a mixed use housing project in Berlin, and a private art collection.

Arno Brandlhuber taught at several universities and colleges.
From 2003 to 2017, he held the chair of architecture and urban research at the Academy of Fine Arts, Nuremberg and directed the nomadic masters program: a42.org.
In 2017 Arno was named professor of architecture and design at the ETH Zurich, where he teaches and researches new methods of representation in architecture and media.
He was a guest professor at several universities including TU Vienna, Harvard Graduate School of Design and others.

Besides his building practice he is researching the transition of spatial organization and production in German history, focusing specifically on the Berlin Republic. As part of this research he put on several exhibitions and publications including The Dialogic City: Berlin wird Berlin.
In recent years Arno Brandlhuber’s practice has been dedicated to the idea of legislation in architecture as the primary factor for the built environment. This mindset resulted in ongoing investigations, both built and theoretical, such as the ARCH+ issue titled Legislating Architecture and the 2016 film Legislating Architecture, made in collaboration with director and film maker Christopher Roth, shown at the 2016 Architecture Biennale in Venice.
Brandlhuber and Roth are currently formulating a second chapter of the Legislating Architecture series, titled The Property Drama, to be shown at the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial.
