Founded in 1996 in Berlin, Germany, J. MAYER H. Architects’s studio 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 Encarnación 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 the founder and principal of this cross-disciplinary studio. He studied at Stuttgart University, The Cooper Union, and Princeton University. His work has been published and exhibited worldwide and is part of numerous collections including MoMA New York and SF MoMA. National and international awards include the Mies van der Rohe Award, Emerging Architect Special Mention (2003), and Winner Holcim Award Bronze (2005). Mr. Mayer H. has taught at Princeton University, University of the Arts Berlin, Harvard University, Kunsthochschule Berlin, and the Architectural Association in London. He currently teaches at Columbia University in New York.
