Salomé Wackernagel is a French, German & Swiss architectural designer and researcher defending a pluridisciplinary approach in her own practice of architecture. She is currently doing a practice-led by research PhD on urban sprawl and rural revival, called Rurapolis.
After studying design & theory at the ESAA Duperré in Paris, she studied architecture at the ENSA Versailles, the TU Berlin and graduated with a Master of Arts in Architecture at the UdK Berlin. She worked from 2012 as a freelance architect for Raumlabor (Berlin), Museumstechnik Berlin in collaboration with David Chipperfield Architects (Berlin), Lacaton & Vassal (Paris), in the fields of scenography, urbanism and social housing.
In 2017, she co-founded the interior architecture practice M S Studio. In her own extensive architectural practice, she focuses mostly on renovations of early 20th-century buildings, inspired among other references on the investigation of Bauhaus typologies and the work of Charlotte Perriand and Bruno Taut. Until now, she applied her chromatic and contextual approach in several renovation projects in Germany, France, Spain and Switzerland.
As demonstrated by her work as a member of the collective Enter This she co-founded in 2014 in Berlin, and the long-term process Repensar la Periferia, Salomé Wackernagel is also specialized in collaborative processes and self-construction in the public space, working on architectural, social and cultural projects in different urban and rural contexts.
