str.ucture is an engineering company committed to the development of innovative lightweight solutions for new and existing constructions. We are experts on specialised methods of calculation and simulation. Our strength lies in turning complex analyses into solutions for challenging design tasks. str.ucture is a company of consulting engineers registered with the Baden-Württemberg Chamber of Engineers.
str.ucture stands for a design process where structures or components optimally fulfill their mission with minimal materials usage and minimal manufacturing effort. Perfectly shaped design is clear, simple, and logical. It is the aim to achieve more with less. Innovative thinking and solution-oriented methods of the Stuttgart school have strongly influenced our development.
Our qualification is due to internationally renowned engineers such as Fritz Leonhardt, Frei Otto, Jörg Schlaich, Jan Knippers and Werner Sobek. Together with excellent teachers like Jürgen Bradatsch, Eberhard Haug and Kai Uwe Bletzinger they served as inspiring examples and convince us that the secret of lightweight design lies in constantly expanding the limits of what is achievable.
str.ucture realises the potential of lightweight design in integrating structural and functional demands. Of equal importance is the development of new materials and the application of latest simulation methods. str.ucture signifies a strictly solution-oriented planning process of interdisciplinary and iterative work.
str.ucture was founded in 2012 by Michael Herrmann, Julian Lienhard, Alexander Michalski and Stefan Schöne originating from Studio LD that had already been established in the sector of lightweight design since 2008. The company based in Stuttgart is operating internationally.
str.ucture is a dynamic interdisciplinary team of engineers and architects.
