BART//BRATKE is a design collaborative founded by Paul Bart and Marvin Bratke as a network of creative minds with a research and design focus. The studio is invested in the development of architectural environments integrating synthetic ecologies with shifting material states and electronic information infrastructures. We are a progressive architecture practice with a passion for experimentation, questioning the norm and developing unconventional solutions. Founded in 2004 as a research platform, the studio was incorporated in early 2014. We are small, agile, based in London and Berlin, operating globally. We offer a full range of architectural services and have an international network of expert collaborators to enable us to tackle complex and larger-scale projects. The studio’s focus lies on the investigation, representation and innovation through the strategic combination of architecture, media arts, film and urbanism.
BART//BRATKE, in line with the spirit of the contemporary avanguarde, pledges research and innovation as the paramount driving force of the design process and its actual manifestation into built forms. The practice bridges experimental design and practical solutions through the rigorous implementation of physical crafts and computational protocols.
We have a fascination with the impact of emerging technologies on architecture and construction. We are focused on how to develop and leverage these innovations to rethink what architecture might be and to create intricately crafted buildings.
We work at all scales in architecture, design and graphics. We believe in highest aesthetic content in architecture and we’re searching for dynamic and complex design solutions.
Following ten years of collaborative work, both with academic and professional background, Bart//Bratke Studio was founded in 2014.
