Hans Robert Hiegel (born 1954 in Kaiserslautern) is a German architect.[1]


He lived in London until 1978 and his first work was House Agne, 1983. Succeeding projects tend to a classical architectural style. Important articles include Werkheft04 (ISBN 3-923222-03-3), and by Thilo Hilpert in the Frankfurt Lounge, first published in the Japanese architectural journal A+U, Tokyo. He studied architecture at the University of Karlsruhe and at the Architectural Association (AA), together with Steven Holl. His teaching locations include the AA, the HfG Karlsruhe and the Bezalel Academy, Jerusalem.


In 1983, he designed the project Campanile in Frankfurt am Main, which turned out to be most influential on the Messeturm. Personal contacts to Joseph Rykwert who introduced him to the work and the person of Hans-Georg Gadamer were seminal to his philosophy and his thinking. "Oase" is the name of his prizewinning design for a Kindergarten near Baden-Baden which continues his quest for classical positions in architectural language.
