CDMBARLIEB is a licensed architecture design collaborative founded by Christophe DM BARLIEB. The practice explores and applies architectural methods and models relevant to contemporary modes of living. The studio is equipped with a cutting edge digital modelling, rapid-prototyping, and woodworking shop to study the physical realm of architecture and its associated media practices.

Christophe Barlieb is an architect specialized in architecture media theory and practice. He currently leads the R&D unit of applied robotics in architecture at Werk5 GmbH. He has taught at the Technical University of Berlin, the Technical University of Braunschweig and the Shenkar College of Design and Engineering in Tel Aviv, a.o. He received a B.Arch. from Pratt Institute and collaborated with Raimund Abraham on the Austrian Cultural Forum, the Musikerhaus and the Harry Smith Heaven and Earth Library.

The Académie des Beaux-Arts of France awarded CDMBARLIEB the 2007 Prix André Arfvidson of the Grand Prix d’Architecture. The studio’s work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennial of Architecture, the Grand Palais in Paris and the Deutsches Architekturmuseum in Frankfurt, a.o.
