Kuehn Malvezzi

Berlin, Germany

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. They realized the architectural design for Documenta 11 and the Julia Stoschek Collection in Dusseldorf, which was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award. The firm has designed the reorganization of a number of art collections and dealt with sensitive preservation issues for listed buildings such as the Museum Belvedere in Vienna and the Berggruen Collection in Berlin. Kuehn Malvezzi won the international competition for the inter-religious House of One in Berlin in 2012 and for the Insectarium in Montreal in 2014. In 2017, they will complete a new venue for the Moderne Galerie at the Saarlandmuseum. Their projects have been shown in the 10th, 13th, and 14th Architecture Biennale in Venice, the Manifesta 7 in Trento, and the 1st Chicago Architecture Biennial.
