Philosophy

reinhardt_jung is a Frankfurt based office acting as architects, educators and researchers: Dagmar Reinhardt and Alexander Jung. The office work covers theory, education, building, curatorial collaborations, exhibitions, installations, publications, academic research and architectural projects. reinhardt_jung’s work has been exhibited in Europe and Australia in an architectural and artistic contexts. Their practice-based and entrepreneurial pursuits are grounds for exploratory investigation, for prototyping and conceptual transfer from which research-practice-business collaborations emerge. reinhardt_jung are regularly producers and collaborators of international projects integrating urbanism, architecture and installation art. reinhardt_jung understand the process of architecture as teamwork with students and colleagues, with clients and builders. The development of progressive spatial constructions, new modes of inhabiation, the integration of cultural and social aspects, the rethinking of architectural procedures are our field of interest and expertise.


Alexander Jung was trained as a draftsman before graduating in architecture and receiving a postgraduate degree of Städelschule Frankfurt. Jung worked internationally on architecture projects, in Italy, Gremany and the Netherlands, amongst others for UN Studio/ Van Berkel and Bos as a project architect on UFCCI Manhattan, Almere Expo 2001, and Mercedes Benz Museum, Stuttgart. Jung received the Taut-Preis, the famous distinction of the BDA Germany, in 2002.

Dagmar Reinhardt received a postgraduate degree of Conceptual Design from Städelschule
Frankfurt (University of Fine Arts), where she taught with Ben van Berkel, Peter Cook, Enric Miralles and Mark Wigley. Reinhardt has been the Studio Leader of the Master of Architectural Design at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Sydney, where she is currently completing Ph.D. research that investigates designing duration in contemporary fashion and architecture and focuses on dynamic surface and spatial strategies. This work is supported by an IPA and IPRS scholarship from the University of Sydney.
