Sauerbruch Hutton is an international agency for architecture, urbanism and design, founded by Louisa Hutton and Matthias Sauerbruch in 1989. The practice has been recognised for its long-term engagement with and expertise in sustainable architecture. Its integrated design approach aims for an architecture that combines ecological performance with intuition and sensuality. Among its award-winning projects are the GSW Headquarters in Berlin, the Brandhorst Museum in Munich and the Federal Environmental Agency in Dessau, all benchmarks for sustainable design. The 100-strong team in Berlin is currently working on a number of projects throughout Europe, including the new Headquarters for Médecins Sans Frontières in Geneva. Their M9 Museum of the 20th Century in Venice Mestre opened to the public in December 2018 and the Experimenta Science Center, Heilbronn, in spring 2019.
