Gunter Behnisch was born in Dresden in 1922. He trained at the Technical University in Stuttgart then worked for Rolf Gutbrod for one year before he started his own practice.
In 1967 Behnisch formed Gunter Behnisch and Partner. Initially the firm concentrated its efforts on prefabricated school buildings. Since this system allowed for little flexibility it was dropped in favor of a more organic modern style. Through organic architecture the firm was able to utilize "more varied, flexible forms and more ecologically balanced designs."
Behnisch firmly believes in and designs with the idea that the innovative building techniques and materials provide the catalyst for new architectural possibilities.
