Alright, my ninjas – we’re bringing it back. Thats right, MNP’s architecte de la semaine [architect of the week] – or ADLS – is being resurrected. And to kick it off, we’re bringing you the work of Pott Architects.

Ingo Pott, founder of Pott Architects, studied at the Technical University in Berlin from ’92-98′, with a focus on sustainable building concepts. In ’95 he joined the Norman Foster team that had been commissioned to convert the Reichstag building into the home of the German Parliament – and worked as project architect until the dome’s completion in ’99. From ’98 to ’05 he worked at Foster & Partners in a managerial capacity, participating in a number of projects in Berlin + London – including integrated projects, such as the Arts Faculty Library of the Free University in Berlin.

In 2000 Pott co-founded the Cultural Forum C/O Berlin [with 2 partners] in order to ‘facilitate the interdisciplinary dialogue between architecture, design and photography’ – spurred by his realization that ‘the future of architecture must lie in dialogue with people, culture and academia’. In particular he has been focused on working with children and young people, providing them with a ‘visual education’ in the forum’s workshops.

Ingo Pott founded Pott Architects in 2005, and currently lives/works in Berlin, with second office in London.
