Architect Frank Barkow (Barkow Leibinger) discusses his craft at The Cooper Union. In 1993, he and Regine Leibinger founded their practice in Berlin. Their interdisciplinary, discursive attitude allows their work to expand and respond to advancing knowledge and technology. Recently completed projects include a high rise, Tour Total, near the Berlin main train station and an apartment and hotel complex in Freiburg. A current project is a multi-use extension for the Aufbau Haus in Berlin. Their work is in the permanent collections of MoMA, the HeinzArchitectureCenter, Pittsburgh, and the Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Frankfurt.
Barkow Leibinger’s work was shown recently at the 4th Marrakech Biennale and included in the 11th Architecture Biennale, Venice, Arsenale Show. It has appeared at the Architectural Association in London and 032c Gallery in Berlin in conjunction with the publication of the catalogue “An Atlas of Fabrication.”
Barkow studied architecture at MontanaStateUniversity and the Harvard GSD. He has taught at the Royal College of Art in London, the EPFL in Lausanne, Harvard GSD, and University of Wisconsin in conjunction with his firm winning the Marcus Prize for Architecture (2007).
