Gunter Henn. HENN

HENN is an international architecture practice with offices in Munich, Berlin and Beijing and over 70 years of expertise in the fields of work space, culture, health, education and research as well as production and master planning.

The office is led by 4 managing directors and 16 partners: Martin Henn, Stefan Sinning, Wolfgang Wrba and Werner Sonnleitner, with Klaus Ransmayr, Daniel Festag, Marcus Fissan, Hans Funk, Georg Pichler, Tanja Dietsch, Martin Erdinger, Andreas Fuchs, Katrin Jacobs, Rainer Sladek, Thomas von Küstenfeld, Fredrik Werner, Christian Bechtle, Patrick Br ll, Joachim Grund and Berthold Staber. HENN employs over 350 employees – architects, designers, planners and engineers – from 30 countries are able to draw upon a wealth of knowledge collected over three generations of building experience in addition to a worldwide network of partners and experts in a variety of disciplines.

This continuity, coupled with progressive design approaches and methods and interdisciplinary research projects, forms the basis for a continual examination of current issues and for a consistent design philosophy. Forms and spaces are no mere objective, they are developed from the processes, demands and cultural contexts of each project. As a general contractor we are able to satisfy this principle at every stage of project planning and implementation.

Gunter Henn was born in Dresden in 1947 and studied architecture and structural engineering in Munich and Berlin. He is the chairman of HENN. He founded the office in Munich in 1979 and is the successor of the office of Walter Henn. Since 1994, Gunter Henn has been a visiting professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge. Gunter Henn managed the chair in industrial construction and the Centre for Knowledge Architecture at the Technical University of Dresden.
