one of the world's leading offices in lightweight structures, with over 280 employees from more than 20 nations. There are few extraordinary bridges, iconic stadiums, or movable structures that sbp has not been involved in.

Filigree, elegant lightweight structures are a essential characteristic of the signature of schlaich bergermann partner. In addition to its elegance and efficiency, lightweight construction is primarily resource-efficient. The lighter the structure in relation to its load, the more efficient and sustainable the structure is. Furthermore, lightweight structures can be effortlessly deconstructed due to their predominantly homogeneous materials, and, above all, they can be excellently transformed thanks to their great flexibility. With their versatile use, lightweight structures offer significant added value in architecture. Christoph Paech, Managing Director at sbp, presents selected projects.
