Peter Haimerl, born 1961 in Eben, Bavarian Forest
Peter Haimerl, whose architecture office was established in Munich in 1991, questions the boundaries of architecture and urban design. He concentrates on projects, which cross the line of conventional architecture. In every project, he demands fascinating and unconventional solutions to create innovation.
To live up to this goal, he works together with experts of many different fields. In order to achieve coherent concepts, he melds his architectural view with other contexts such as computer programming, sociology, economics, politics and conceptual art. For instance zoomtown: This project is an open research platform to optimize and reorganize urban design. Award-winning of his projects are a parking garage in the center of Munich, a pavilion in the Friendship Park of Cincinnati or the concert hall Blaibach.
Currently Peter Haimerl dedicates his work to the leitmotif “attraction instead of restriction” and is interested in construction within existing structures. Each project is special, the requirements are specific, the solutions subtle.
