Profile

The architects Simona Malvezzi, Wilfried Kuehn and Johannes Kuehn founded Kuehn Malvezzi in Berlin in 2001.

Public spaces and exhibitions are the main focus of their work as architects, designers and curators. They realized the architectural design for Documenta 11, the Flick Collection in the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin as well as the Julia Stoschek Collection in Dusseldorf, which was nominated for the international Mies van der Rohe award. The firm has designed the reorganization of a number of contemporary and historical art collections, and dealt as well with sensitive preservation issues for listed buildings such as the Museum Belvedere in Vienna, the Liebieghaus in Frankfurt, the Berggruen Collection as well as the Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin as well as the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum in Brunswick.

Kuehn Malvezzi won the international competition for the interreligious House of One on the historic foundations of Berlin’s earliest churches at Petriplatz in 2012 and for the Insectarium in Montreal in 2014. The architects recently completed a new venue for the Moderne Galerie at the Saarlandmuseum which will reopen in November 2017. A number of buildings for private clients have been realized in the last years, including both residential and commercial projects.

When it won the special prize, Kuehn Malvezzi’s entry for the Humboldt-Forum competition in Berlin attracted a great deal of attention. Their critical approach to reconstruction shown in this design was also awarded with the 2009 German Critics’ Prize in the architecture category. Their projects have been shown in international solo and group exhibitions, including the 10th, 13th and 14th Architecture Biennial in Venice and Manifesta 7 in Trento. Kuehn Malvezzi participated in the 1st Chicago Architecture Biennial in 2015 and take part in the second edition in 2017.
