HINNERK UTERMANN, Germany
architect I landscape architect I lecturer I researcher
studied architecture in Weimar and Tokyo and Fine Arts in Leipzig. He works as an architect and is teaching at the Bauhaus University Weimar. In 2017 he started his PhD at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. His artistic research project "MAKE IT REAL" creates research environments to explore proximity. He built "Handcrafted Situations" to train togetherness between solitude and friendship
As a researcher, architect, teacher, and craftsman he has a broad background and a multi-layered perspective of space. He can create buildings and plan and manage architectural building processes, he teaches how to design architectural spaces, how to perform in and with space as well as how to create spatial environments that go beyond disciplines. Nevertheless, his perspective is rather primitive in relation to its endless aspects and current shifts. The digital replaces, extends, and transforms the known space and the Corona Crisis has shown the urgency of being a human in space – just to name two examples that show the importance of space.
