PROFILE

MCKNHM is an architecture firm that operates within various cross-disciplinary design fields. For more than fifteen years, Mark Mückenheim, the founder of MCKNHM Architects contributed to building research and teaching in the field of architectural design. His strong belief that architecture is much more than a service and that architectural quality is able to deliver a surplus value that is capable of elevating how we experience and enjoy our life, is reflected in the way MCKNHM Architects are designing buildings for a wide variety of clients, locations and uses, intelligently and sustainably responding to the specifics of their site, brief and needs of the possible users.

MCKNHM Architects is working on architectural and urban planning projects that cover a diverse range of schemes and programs of various scales and locations. The firm's committed professional network includes architects, engineers, landscape architects, designers and artists of various intellectual and specialized design expertise. These selected experts are involved in every phase of the design and building process. Trough an intense collaboration within this network, MCKNHM Architects always strives to realize individual, innovative and yet sustainable and efficient solutions that oftentimes incorporate the use of up-to-date technology and knowledge.

MCKNHM Architects render themselves independent of any design boundaries or methods: each encountered assignment is different and is treated as such. The guiding force behind their work follows a conceptually driven design approach leading to a comprehensive design strategy. Their design work is therefore a resultant of intense project oriented investigations that is also reflected in the active engagement of teaching, research and the collaboration with different architecture schools and institutions. This integrated design attitude allows for the architecture to develop from the different parameters set by the client, site, location and the specific requirements of any given assignment. The way MCKNHM Architects approach a task is, that possible problems are not seen as obstacles but rather chances and opportunities to develop innovative, yet tangible solutions for the world we would like to live in.

MCKNHM Architects has received national and international awards. It has been featured in various international book and journal publications and has also gained reputation through a number of exhibitions in Germany and abroad.

MCKNHM Architects is a full service firm licensed in Germany and the European Union. The firm provides their architectural design services worldwide. International projects are completed together with international partners, licensed local firms and contractors.

THE BOOK

Inspiration
by Mark Mückenheim
and Juliane Demel

"A fascinating book which shows how the application of non figurative, abstract spatial patterns need no longer be seen as a reductive design methodology. Instead, through a complex and richer use than ever before, these devices can be implemented throughout the three dimensional organisation of a project. A great reference book with many wonderful examples for architects, students and anybody interested in the profession."
Ben Van Berkel

Inspiration: contemporary design methods in architecture by Mark Mückenheim and Juliane Demel is a comprehensive compilation of work samples and ideas on design and gestalt, illustrations and graphic configurations, textures and structures, as well as form and spatial development. This book features more than 800 examples of abstract compositions that relate to architectural design methods and principles. These methodologies find their ground in the work of contemporary architectural design practice, while still being highly applicable to other related creative fields. Inspiration showcases hundreds of examples, models, sketches, and renderings of abstract architectural design applications. In addition to this substantial body of visual work, the book also documents and details the generative process and production of these design creations.
