Nikolaus Hirsch

Nikolaus Hirsch is a Frankfurt-based architect, who has previously held academic positions at the Architectural Association in London, at the Institute of Applied Theater Studies at Giessen University, and at UPenn in Philadelphia. His projects include the award-winning Dresden Synagogue, Hinzert Document Center, the European Kunsthalle in Cologne, unitednationsplaza in Berlin and currently the Cybermohalla Hub in Delhi. The Cymbermohalla Hub in Delhi represents a hybrid condition of school, community center and gallery that involves 70 young practitioners in a project to engage their urban context through various media. Can such a project create a condition in which architecture becomes a self-reflexive tool for an institution and its cultural agency?
