Martin Knüsel started at Herzog & de Meuron during his internship and joined in 2003 after his studies. His first few years mainly involved Spanish projects such as Ciudad del Flamenco in Jerez and the master plan and Bulevar in Burgos, which included exhibition design as well as architectural and urban planning, followed by work on Roche Bau 1. After a two-year period of research and teaching, he returned in 2014 as an Associate initially working on M+ in Hong Kong and focusing again on various Roche projects in Basel. Since 2016, he has been deeply involved in the concept and early project phases of several projects, such as the Neue Nationalgalerie – Museum des 20. Jahrhunderts in Berlin and Autobahnkirche in Andeer, Switzerland, while also pursuing further realization phases, notably with SongEun ArtSpace and Samtan HQ in Seoul which is nearing completion. He became a Partner in 2021.
Martin earned his degree in architecture at ETH Zurich in 2003, including an exchange period at Harvard University (with distinction). From 2011 to 2013, he taught at the ETH Future Cities Lab in Singapore. Within the chair of Milica Topalovic, he was responsible for the ETH exhibition project “Constructed Land” shown at the International Architectural Biennale Rotterdam in 2014.
