die Baupiloten BDA (formerly Susanne Hofmann Architekten) is an interdisciplinary practice that specializes in educational buildings and housing developed through unique participatory design strategies. Our work focuses on innovative experimental design that is driven by both a social and ecological agenda. A core team of eight architects and engineers collaborates with various designers, engineers and specialists dependent on each project.
Established in 2003, the Study Reform Project die Baupiloten is a collaboration between the Technical University Berlin and die Baupiloten BDA (formerly Susanne Hofmann Architects), which allows architectural students to be involved in real projects from conception through to completion. The Baupiloten studio bridges education, practice and research.
