Prof. Uwe R. Brückner

On both the national and international level, Prof. Uwe R. Brückner is highly esteemed as an opinion leader in the area of exhibition design and planning. He is regarded as an eminent authority and expert on the development of narrative spatial concepts. On the basis of his philosophy of design encapsulated in the credo "form follows content" and his design methodology “creative structure”, he has created more than 100 exhibition sets and experiential environments for museums and corporate brands. His creative aspiration is to use stories and content to form spatial works of art (Gesamtkunstwerke) which are inspired by content and narration.
