About

Benjamin T. Busch was internationally trained as an architect at the University of Kansas, Potsdam University of Applied Sciences and the University of Stuttgart before studying fine art at Weissensee School of Art. He has lived and worked in Berlin since 2011, where he leads Studio Busch, a platform for spatial practice operating between the disciplines of photography and design. Treating architecture as a symptom of abstract processes, Busch’s artwork and writing investigate complex fields of relations within the built environment. His master of arts in spatial strategies thesis explores spatial practice in relation to planetary-scale computation, placing particular focus on self-organized habitat production and its mediation.
