Matthias Hollwich, SBA, is a registered, European architect who has established himself at the forefront of a new generation of ground and rule breaking international architects. Before co-founding HWKN, Matthias worked with Rem Koolhaas at OMA in Rotterdam, Eisenman Architects, and Diller+Scofidio. Matthias's view that the key to successful architecture lies in finding new and exciting ways to create dialogue and relationships between people and buildings is regularly communicated at events such as TED, PICNIC, and as visiting professor with the University of Pennsylvania. His work is regularly celebrated in leading media outlets such as the New York Times, Wallpaper*, and the Wall Street Journal.
HWKN is a new kind of architecture firm - a collection of design, construction, and communication specialists led by two globally recognized architects and tech entrepreneurs. They are motivated to create architecture rich in individual personality, local context, and highly social experiences, because their mission is to facilitate those unique emotional bonds that form between people and their built environment. Each HWKN project is an opportunity to inspire and provide future social, cultural, and economic value for their clients and the communities they join.
