Sauerbruch and Hutton spoke to Dezeen's founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs live from Berlin.
The pair founded Sauerbruch Hutton in London in 1989, before moving operations to Berlin. The practice renovated and extended a former Prussian military uniform factory to accommodate its own offices and an artist's studio.
Other projects completed by the firm include a church in Cologne with a zigzagging timber exterior, and Cologne's colourfully-clad Brandhorst Museum.
Other creatives featured in our Screentime series include trend forecaster Li Edelkoort, UNStudio founder Ben van Berkel, New York architecture practice SO-IL, The World Around curator Beatrice Galilee, filmmaker Gary Hustwit and British-Israeli architect Ron Arad.
