Martin Henn studied architecture at the University of Stuttgart and at the ETH, Zurich. He received his Master’s Degree in Architecture from the ETH, Zurich in 2006, and his Post-Professional Master of Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University, New York in 2008. Prior to HENN, he was working for Zaha Hadid Architects in London and Asymptote Architecture in New York. 

Today, Martin Henn is partner and head of design at HENN, an international architectural practice with more than 65 years of expertise in the design and realization of buildings and masterplans. The office is led by his father Gunter Henn and thirteen partners with branches in Munich, Berlin, Beijing and Shanghai. 350 employees from 25 countries are able to draw upon a wealth of knowledge collected over three generations of architects and engineers. Continuity, coupled with an experimental design approach forms the basis for a continual examination of current issues and for a consistent design philosophy. Forms and spaces are no mere objective, they are developed from the processes, demands and cultural contexts of each project. 
Martin Henn will talk about the mutual relationships of design, research and context in their current work.
