Speaker: Jürgen Mayer H., Founder, J. MAYER H. und Partner, Architekten
Jürgen Mayer H. is founder and principal at J. MAYER H. und Partner, Architekten, a firm focusing on works at the intersection of architecture, communication, and new technology. Recent international projects include Metropol Parasol, the redevelopment of the Plaza de la Encarnación in Seville, Spain; the Court of Justice in Hasselt, Belgium; Pavilion KA300, built in celebration of Karlsruhe’s 300th jubilee; and several public and infrastructural projects in Georgia, including an airport in Mestia, the border checkpoint in Sarpi, and three rest stops along the highway in Gori and Lochini. 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.
