Born in Starnberg/Germany in 1985.

Sebastian Klawiter is a master carpenter. After completing his apprenticeship, he received a BA in interior design from the University of Applied Sciences Coburg/Germany and an MA in architecture from the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart/Germany. In his works, he thematizes and designs collaborative uses and design processes at different levels of scale at the intersection of crafts, architecture, urban planning and art.

With Hanna Noller and a group of young designers, he initiated the award-winning non-profit association Stadtlücken e.V. in 2015. With the development and application of the Stadtlücken (Gaps in the City) strategy, the collective has, among other projects, laid the foundations for the Urbanes Experimentierfeld Österreichischer Platz (an urban experimental field), and inspired the further development and participatory process of the Church of St. Maria in Stuttgart.

In the winter semester of 2019/2020, he and Hanna Noller acted as temporary professors of the class of architectural design at the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart. Since 2016, Sebastian Klawiter has been working in research and teaching at the Institute for Urban Planning and Design at the University of Stuttgart, the Stuttgart Technology University of Applied Sciences and the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart. In June 2018, Sebastian Klawiter and Hanna Noller took over the coordination of the research project Future City Lab – Reallabor für nachhaltige Mobilitätskultur (Real-world laboratory for sustainable mobility culture). As part of the Akademie Schloss Solitude fellowship, they investigate how experiences from temporary projects can be implemented in the context of long-term cooperative urban development under the heading Von temporär zu legendär (From temporary to legendary).
