Meet Jürgen Mayer H.

Metropol Parasol in Sevilla - find out more here

Jürgen Mayer H
I did watch a portrait of Jürgen Mayer H. on TV yesterday and was fascinated by his way of thinking - leaving outworn pathes and interpreting architecture in a new way. He is THE architect of the 21st century. So good to know him - I am sure one will hear more of him! Hereafter you find a short CV including a link to his website:

"Founded in 1996 in Berlin, Germany, J. MAYER H. focuses on works at the intersection of architecture, communication and new technology. 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. From urban planning schemes and buildings to installation work and objects with new materials, the relationship between the human body, technology and nature form the background for a new production of space.
Jürgen Mayer H. is founder and principal of this crossdisciplinairy studio. He studied at Stuttgart University, The Cooper Union and at Princeton Universtiy. His work was published and exhibited worldwide and is part of international collections like the MoMA New York and SF MoMA. His work was awarded with numerous prizes, i.e. the Mies-van-der-Rohe-Award 2003 Emerging Architect and Winner Holcim Awards 2005 Bronze Europe for Metropol Parasol. Jürgen Mayer H. tought 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."

I hope my post gives you a good start into this new week!
