UBC SALA Lecture Series: Frank Barkow
February 17, 2016
SALA Friends and Family Lecture by Frank Barkow, Barkow Leibinger, Berlin, Germany.
Frank Barkow studied architecture at Montana State University and the Harvard Graduate School of Design. In 1993, Frank Barkow and Regine Leibinger founded their practice in Berlin. Their discursive research-based approach to architecture and design allows the work to respond to advancing knowledge and technology, and places the practice at the forefront of digital and analogue fabrication techniques.
Important projects include the Biosphere in Potsdam, Germany, the Customer and Administration Building, the Gate House and the Campus Restaurant in Ditzingen, Germany, and the Trutec Building in Seoul. BL has received three National AIA Honor Awards for Architecture, the Marcus Prize for Architecture, recognizing emerging architects, and a Global Holcim Innovation Award for Sustainable Construction.
