Sauerbruch Hutton is an award-winning, international agency for architecture, urbanism and design. Its architecture is always in the context of the city and combines functionality with an ecological performance that goes far beyond purely technical aspects. Projects such as the police station in Berlin, the Federal Environment Agency in Dessau or the Sammlung Brandhorst Museum in Munich demonstrate a convincing use of materiality and colour. Founded in 1989 by Matthias Sauerbruch and Louisa Hutton, the agency today works on a wide variety of projects worldwide – including housing, museum, educational institution and office high-rise buildings -, impressing with precisely detailed, ecologically conscious, and urbanistically sophisticated designs.
This monograph on the Sauerbruch Hutton agency looks behind the scenes, describes processes and comprises one thing in particular: many building details.
