Tristan Kobler

Dipl. Arch. ETH, Swiss Society of Engineers and Architects SIA, Berlin Chamber of Architects AKB

Tristan Kobler worked as a scenographer and curator at the Museum of Design in Zurich after his degree in architecture at the Technical University of Zurich (ETH) and started out on his own in 1996 as an architect, and organizer and designer of exhibitions. He has planned and finalized more than 100 cultural and commercial exhibitions as well as numerous buildings. For the Swiss Expo.02 he was put in charge of the overall architectural planning of the Arteplage Yverdon-les-Bains, at the same time establishing “Morphing Systems”, which in 2004 merged with the firm of Barbara Holzer into Holzer Kobler Architekturen (architectures). Later Holzer Kobler Architekturen Berlin was established in 2012. Together with an international, multidisciplinary team of experts, an exciting oeuvre has come into being. The effective interaction of urban planning, architecture, scenography and design, the focus on comprehensive concepts and the overlapping of varying arts characterize Kobler's work style.

Since graduating, Tristan Kobler has also been active as a lecturer in France, Germany and Switzerland and since 2011 he has been teaching at the Haute École d'Art et du Design, Geneva (HEAD). In 2008 Tristan Kobler and Barbara Holzer were awarded the Grand Prix Design of the Swiss Confederation for their international dedication.
