Markus Stenger (*1972), Munich based Architect and writer, studied architecture at the Bauhaus-University Weimar and Ohio State University, Columbus, USA in the 1990s. Together with Annette Stenger he founded an architecture agency in 2003. Since 2014 the agency has operated under the name “Stenger2 Architekten und Partner”, together with Jörg Siegert. Stenger2 architects and partners are problem solvers who go where it hurts, where others stop: The revitalization of vacant buildings, the preparation and implementation of complex fire protection concepts and obtaining building permits where none had been issued before. In 2013, Markus Stenger founded S2LAB Denkraum für Architektur. In addition to the daily business of building, they are also occupied with the conceptual and process-related aspects that are integral to architecture. For many years, the Stengers toured the Mediterranean where they studied original examples of ancient architecture. This resulted in a series of photos, sketches, and texts, which are occasionally included in publications.
