Built in collaboration with Atelier 2A+, the goal was to modernise the site of an existing school dating from the 1980s, including a Franco-German bilingual secondary school, a primary school, a lower secondary school and gymnasium, and to link them together with outdoor enhancements to strengthen the identity of the campus. This approach has resulted in the creation of an attractive place of learning for approximately 1,000 students, standing in a park amidst magnificent trees.

The Bavarian town of Inzell hosted the World Single Distant Speed Skating Championships 2011. To create the world-class competition conditions required for this event, the existing outdoor speed-skating track was upgraded through the construction of a high-performance intelligent roof structure. This improved arena can accommodate up to 7,000 spectators and offers maximum flexibility for large scale world class competitions as well as regular seasonal speed-skating training.

About Behnisch Architekten

Behnisch Architekten was founded as a branch office of Behnisch & Partner in 1989 and, under the leadership of Stefan Behnisch, developed into a successful, internationally active firm. In 1991 it became independent in its partnership structure. While Günter Behnisch continued to lead his office, Behnisch and Partner, until 2005, this developed through various partnerships to become, since 2005, the architecture office called Behnisch Architekten. In 1999, an office was opened in Los Angeles (to 2011), in 2006 another in Boston and in 2009 the Munich office was founded.

The three offices are led by Stefan Behnisch, each together with a partner. In Munich it is Robert Hösle, in Boston, Robert Matthew Noblett and in the Stuttgart office Stefan Rappold. All three offices operate together and in close collaboration, each working on their respective projects upon their own authority.

One of the office’s motives is the thought that architecture has a direct influence on living quality in all areas of life. This emphasis on the social dimension is a decisive aspect of the work of Behnisch Architekten.
