B.Sc. UniversityStuttgart (GER)

BEHNISCH ARCHITEKTEN 125 Kingston Street 02111 BOSTON T O W H O M I T M AY C O N C E R N , My name is Marie Sophie Hoppe and I am a 2nd semester Master of Science Architecture and Urban Planning student at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. I am very much interested in an internship at Behnisch Architekten, Boston Office, starting March or April 2017 for a time period of 6 months.

Through the experience I gained in a former internship in Copenhagen and my work as a student trainee at uta Architekten in Stuttgart, I know of the many benefits and advantages an internship can provide and I am looking forward to participate in another one, preferably abroad. I am very sure it will strongly enrich my future studies, my personal growth and provide an undistorted insight in the field of a working architect. Moreover, I consider an internship in the United States a great opportunity to connect with the American culture and architecture. During my participation in the Summer Studies Program at the Duke University´s Talent Identification Program at the Texas A&M University in 2009, I already gained a small glimpse. Related to my job at uta Architekten in Stuttgart (, I collaborated from the start in both concept and project development. I am currently working on sketches, models and ideas in the design phase, detailed plans, drawings for building applications and drawings of final plans.

I have chosen to apply at Behnisch Architekten, because I really like the detailed elaboration and innovative concepts realized in your many projects. The designs illustrated on your website are unique for me, because social interaction has been created through all your projects. Your design guidelines are very appealing and for me a very interesting and promising strategy to design. Most of all I was impressed by the Unilever Headquarter in Hamburg (GER) and the Langsdale Library Renovation in Baltimore (USA). Both projects show an atmospherical interior space with a great use of sunlight and materials, as they are precisely adapted to the prevailing conditions and users. Considering urban areas as a starting point and not just focusing on a building, follows my attitude to design and develop complex architecture and high-quality urban areas for humans to live and work in.

During my studies, I have often heard the name Behnisch Architekten and already then learned about your way of designing and your realized projects. We have discussed, analyzed and visited many of your great architectural developments and my fascination increased consistently. Last but not least my enthusiasm was again confirmed when I heard only highly positive evaluations of former interns, who worked at Behnisch Architekten, Boston Office, such as Marc LĂźling and Lena Engelfried.

I consider myself a focused, passionate, ambitious and fast learning person with a strong, detail oriented nature and distinct communication skills. I am receptive to new procedures, approaches and also different software, I am able to handle responsibility and I am eager to grow with my job, looking for demanding tasks and varied activities. Positive relationships with my work colleagues are very important to me, while working independent and as part of a team on different aspects. The response from former employers has always been positive and my current office is very satisfied with my work and I am confident I can bring the same level of high performance to your firm.

In addition, I am confident, that my strong skills of producing and executing creative solutions along with my ability to fully commit will prove valuable to your firms work. You can find examples of my work I did during my studies in the further reading and digitalized here .

I would dearly like to further discuss the scope of an internship. I would welcome the chance to meet with you in person, as I am in Boston until October 7. After this I will be available for a Skype or phone interview.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Yours Sincerely,

Marie Sophie Hoppe

BCB –barcelona, can batllò (ESP) 5th semester I Prof. Pesch

- reuse and transform a former industrial area at the outskirts of Barcelona. Reconnecting surrounding open spaces ensures integration of the detached area. The antic industrial areal opens again to the public and offers surrounding residents the opportunity to use, explore and enjoy the new open space that has been missing. A process of participation and working with citizens corresponding to their needs is stimulated. Former buildings are preserved, accommodating new functions and interacting with connected open space and new housing structures. The mixed-use of new and old involve dwellings, offices, a townhall, a market hall, a hostel, cafes and an open air cinema. It is important that the utilization is as diversified as the people, who live and work in it, are.

- a riding arena that meets all requirements and provides additional shade to the open-air tribune at the adjacent stadium. It improves the oblige logistics and sanitary facilities of the outdoor stadium. Designed as a concrete landscape, with a light wooden framework and a translucent membrane, riding inside maintains the feeling of riding through nature - only more sheltered. For bigger events adjustable wooden boxes can be arranged additionally. A modular box system has been developed.

BRN –barns, ehningen (GER) 6th semester I Prof. Cheret

- reuse and toughen an old barn-structure in a suburb of Stuttgart. Connecting unused barns with each other and also with the city center. Most unused barns receive a new use as living areas and become connected again through their gardens and yards. The barn itself works as this connecting element. Residents are given the chance to explore the historic core of their city as a lively, stimulating and jointly whole again. In creating accommodation the focus lies on connecting new and old. Living across generations and historical structures connected to new structural elements is the key theme. To improve the already damaged exterior facade, wood is used to remain a rural character. The interior structure is barely modified and still visible.

SLZ –salzman industry, kassel (GER) bachelorthesis I Prof. Cheret

- reuse the old ,Salzmann’ industry, which is under preservation order. The decay of the former production halls is a continuing process. Breathing new life into the old walls requires a new fire protection concept, a toughened structure and a new use. The exterior is kept untouched, only the inside is made energy-efficient and technically optimized, while maintaining the industrial and original charm of the buildings and the ‚genius loci‘. The historical façade corresponds to the context, while the interior attracts new residents and workers, and develops a new urban center activating the suburban area around it. The installation of an exhibition area is essential for the art festival ,documenta’, happening in Kassel every four years. Through our commitment the city of Kassel has been motivated to develop the old industrial area again and started to protect the site with fences and provisional reparations on the structure.

CHH –cohabitation, hamburg (GER) 10th semester I Prof. Stockmann

- creating an interface for observation purposes to introduce city dwellers to the species - rich urban nature. Located at Hamburgs city center, a location with many urban animals and humans draws as much attention to the observation stand as possible. Each floor is dedicated to a specific species. It either supports an observation purpose, without disturbing the animal in the process, gives information about urban nature and the surrounding species, or provides shelter and food sources for them. The tower is an educational tool to convey children and urban residents a sensitive message to urban nature and how to maintain it, understand it and use its benefits. The tower reaches out to marine life and to also to monitor the life above the rooftops.
