Marianne Schubert (57) is an Architect and Landscape Architect at Lake Constance and has lead since 1995 an architecture office.
Fields of activity, together with the Portusbau /Karlsruhe office, included planning and supervision of construction projects from Anthroposophical institutions regarding their indoor and outdoor spaces and furniture designs.
Previously, in the early 1990's, after studying Waldorf Pedagogy in Mannheim and Natural Science at the Goetheanum, she worked in the architecture office at the Goetheanum. Besides planning architecture conferences and seminars, her main task was designing the spaces around the Goetheanum and the parking area, together with the Goetheanum's gardeners.
The nomination of Marianne Schubert brought a six-month long search process to a close. A small group of collegues from the Section of Fine Arts and from the School of Spiritual Science were asked to take on that task. Possible candidates were nominated by a group within the Section. Christiane Haid and Paul Mackay from the School of Spiritual Science, as well as Alfred Frischknecht and Rik ten Cate from the Section, had interviewed 4 individualities.
In reflection, Rik ten Cate described the course as, "open and at the same time a protected, organic process," which lead to the appointing of Marianne Schubert as Section leader.
