In memoriam of Jörg Schlaich
sbp 06.09.2021

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Jörg Schlaich, who departed on Saturday, September 4th, surrounded by his loved ones. Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with his family and friends.

Professor Jörg Schlaich founded our office in 1980 together with Rudolf Bergermann and managed it until the end of 2002. For many years after that, he was still an important and highly valued source of ideas and advice for our partners and employees.

His life and legacy will continue to shape our work and identity as well as the future of construction.

A memorial will be held in Stuttgart in November, at which companions will share their encounters and projects with Jörg Schlaich. Further information will follow.

With deep gratitude

Rudolf Bergermann
