Florian Bengert (Ludwigshafen am Rhein, 1989) studied architecture at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and graduated with distinction in 2017. Over the period of his studies he supported the chair of Architekturkommunikation (Prof. Dr. Riklef Rambow) from 2012 – 2017 as a research assistant as well as Raum + Entwerfen (Prof. Marc Frohn) since 2014, where he is currently involved in academic research. Beside some guest studies at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG) he gained working experience in several offices including Buchner Bründler Architekten in Basel.

Funded by the scholarship program of the Sto-Foundation and the ARCH+ Förderverein, he was part of the Berlin based ARCH+ editorial team in 2016/2017, where he contributed to several issues, ARCH+ features and symposia. Further grants include the five-time awarding with the Deutschlandstipendium, the DAAD Erasmus+ Program and a guest residency at the German Academy Rome Villa Massimo in July 2017.

He received a double-time compliment award of the Faculty of Architecture in 2012, his bachelor thesis was awarded the 2nd prize at the BauNetz Campus Masters in 2014 and his master thesis, which examines the smartphone as the New Architecture Machine of the 21st century, was awarded the Friedrich-Weinbrenner-Prize 2017 for outstanding theses.

In the summer of 2016 he organized the lecture series „LIVE LOVE ARCH – Towards a Methodic Optimism“ at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), in which he discussed positions, potentials and strategies for the current production of architecture with Dogma, BeL and Fala Atelier among others.

From the beginning of his activities, he has worked on the interplay between architecture, technology, media and society by focusing on the theory and history of architecture in the 20th and 21st centuries. His critical, speculative and playful projects have widely been shown at various international venues such as the 13th Architecture Biennale (Venice 2012), the Future Architecture Platform (Museum of Architecture and Design, Ljubljana 2017), the Haus der Architektur (Graz 2017), MAXXI – the National Museum of XXI Century Arts (Rome 2017) and the Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism (Seoul 2017).
