Eisenberg Architecture

Frithjof Eisenberg is one of the architects who advocate holistic and aesthetically consistent architecture.

He formulates his claim to contemporary architecture as follows: "Functional and meaningful architecture is always created in a cultural context. Only in this way can it materialise, legitimise itself and achieve an appropriate expression that sustainably represents a complex set of values".


Frithjof Eisenberg, born 1967 in Tanzania, East Africa, studied architecture in Münster and Helsinki. The early insight that architecture must go beyond what is necessary if it is to be aesthetically consistent also brought him to study architecture at the Düsseldorf Art Academy from 1997 to 1999.

Already in the early days of his student collaboration under the direction of Prof. Josef Paul Kleihues and Prof. Herbert Pfeiffer, Eisenberg developed the intellectual approach of an aesthetic architecture that follows Gernot Böhme's general theory of perception: an architecture as an instrument for atmospheres centred on design, fine arts and nature. From 1996 to 2003 he deepened this approach during his work in the Berlin architectural office Kleihues+Kleihues, among others.

In 2004, Frithjof Eisenberg and Uta Eisenberg founded the Eisenberg Architects office, now known as "Eisenberg Architecture".

Frithjof Eisenberg lives and works together with his wife Uta Eisenberg in Essen.
