Klaus Kinold


After studying architecture with Egon Eiermann at the Technische Hochschule in Karlsruhe, Klaus Kinold (German, 1939-2021) opened a studio for architecture photography in 1968, working closely with architects such as Karljosef Schattner and Herman Hertzberger. Kinold follows in the Neue Sachlichkeit tradition of architecture representation pioneered by Werner Mantz, Albert Renger-Patzsch, and Hugo Schmölz and also interprets the historical architecture of such modern masters as Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, and Mies van der Rohe. Kinold’s freeform works and panorama photographs predominantly depict urban spaces and landscapes in context.
