Studio Malta

Hello, we are Studio Malta.

We work across scales in the fields of city and urban planning, architecture and design on creative and participatory processes. We act at the interface between practice-oriented and conceptual work. We develop customized strategies to realize our projects and introduce relevant matters into public discourse.

Mail from the Cultural Office
The Cultural Office of the City of Stuttgart supports our funding request for an extensive action week for collaborative neighborhood development that we are planning for summer 2019 together with the artist Weiny Fitui in the neighborhoods ‘Leonhardsvorstadt’ and ‘Hospitalviertel’.

Cooperation partners include the Institute for Landscape Planning and Ecology at the University of Stuttgart, the City Planning Office, the Cultural Office as well as local civil society institutions and key cultural players of the neighborhoods. Stay tuned!

Deutscher Städtebaupreis 2018
At Germany’s biggest Urban Design Award the Container City of the Kunstverein Wagenhalle e.V. received an award as one of the ten best urban design projects of the past two years!

“The multifunctional area has become a driving force and a programmatic module for the future neighborhood. The interconnection of informal and temporary projects with long-term measures and strategic developments promotes a concentration of public uses that radiates into the immediate surroundings and the entire city.”

We are very happy!
