Florian Bengert was born in Ludwigshafen a.Rh. in 1989 and moved to Karlsruhe to study architecture. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree with Distinction in 2013 and started working in Basel at Buchner Brundler Architekten. Since 2012 he has been supporting a*komm (Prof. Riklef Rambow) as a research assistant as well as R+E (Prof. Marc Frohn) since 2014. He received the Deutschlandstipendium five times and participated in the exhibition '40.000 hours' at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2012.
Besides some guest studies at Hochschule fur Gestaltung (HfG) he organized the 2016 lecture series 'LIVE LOVE ARCH' at Karlsruher Institut fur Technologie (KIT) where he is finishing his studies. Florian is currently based in Berlin where he holds a scholarship by Sto-Stiftung and ARCH+ Forderverein. He works on the cultural logic of the digital era and the resulting role of the architect.
BNGRT is an architectural story of adventure and exploration. He is driven by unlimited imagination, fun and the love to architecture. Conceptual thinking and an authentic, project-specific approach form the essential ingredients of his practice. Next to architecture and spatial design he is interested in the opportunities of cross-disciplinary practices including visual communication, photography and written debates. His work is committed to visual sensibility and fine execution in order to offer fresh, radical and optimistic approaches towards (un-)built environment and its future challenges.
