Arno Brandlhuber, studied architecture and urban design at TU Darmstadt, Germany and Universta degli Studi di Firenze, Italy. In 1996 he founded his practice b&k+ in Cologne.
For more than a decade Brandlhuber’s cultural practice reaches beyond architecture and urbanism in order to politicize issues of private and collective property, sustainable economy and social cooperation.
Amongst his better-known buildings are the Neanderthal Museum (Düsseldorf/ Mettmann 1996) Kölner Brett (Cologne 2000), Crystal (Copenhagen 2003), the Haus Brunnenstrasse 9 (Berlin 2009) and the recently completed Anti-Villa (Potsdam-Krampnitz, 2014).
He is the founder of brandlhuber+ in Berlin (since 2006). Since 2003 he holds the chair of architecture and urban research at the Academy of Fine Arts, Nuremberg and is directing the nomadic masters program a42.org. He is co-founder of the public seminar Akademie c/o, currently researching on the spatial production of the Berlin Republic.
Brandhuber’s work was shown amongst others at ArchiLab 2001 and 2002, the Architecture Biennale, Venice, German Pavillon in 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2012.
After “Brandlhuber+ Von der Stadt der Teile zur Stadt der Teilhabe. Berliner Projekte.” [“From the City of Parts to the City of Participation. Berlin Projects.”] in 2013 he is publishing “Dialogic City, Berlin becomes Berlin” next year.
