About Max Dudler
Max Dudler, born in Altenrhein in Switzerland, studied architecture at the Städelschule in Frankfurt/Main and at the Hochschule der Künste Berlin. He is the founder and director of an architecture firm of the same name, which was founded in 1992 and has offices in Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich and Zurich. Over the course of its more than 25 years of existence, the office's focus has expanded beyond classical architectural tasks. Throughout ever-changing contexts, Max Dudler has transferred his conceptual approach to urban planning, traffic engineering, conversions, monument conservation tasks and exhibitions, right through to furniture design. With around 100 employees from over 10 countries, he implements international projects, including sites in Russia, Belgium and Switzerland.
His architecture follows the fundamental laws of proportion, measure and material. It is an architecture that seeks to build a harmonious whole with simple geometric forms and sees itself as part of a universal ensemble.
His work has received the International Architecture Award in Stone 2015 for the high-rise ensemble Hagenholzstraße in Zurich, the Hugo-Häring Landespreis 2015 of the BDA Baden-Württemberg for the Visitor Centre Heidelberg Castle, the DAM Prize for Architecture in Germany 2012 for work on Hambach Castle and the Nike for the best urbanistic interpretation 2010 for the Jacob-and-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum. In 2004 Max Dudler was appointed professor at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.
