Ole Scheeren: Spaces of Life

Architecture is both an expression of reality and a vision of possible future lifeworlds. »ole scheeren : spaces of life« showcases the work of architect Ole Scheeren, born in Karlsruhe in 1971, and explores the question of how today’s architecture creates prototypes for living tomorrow.

Scheeren is one of Germany's best-known architects and has made a name for himself with innovative high-rise buildings and residential projects. In 2014, his apartment building complex »The Interlace« in Singapore won the Urban Habitat Award of the Chicago Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) as the world’s best high-rise project for urban living, and in 2015 it was designated »World Building of the Year« at the World Architecture Festival.

Since 2010, he has run his own office with branches in Hong Kong, Beijing, Berlin, and London. For Scheeren, architecture is an organism intertwined with life. He breaks open once-separate functional areas such as living and working, commerce and culture, by designing spaces that focus on people’s needs.
