  • Erich Schelling (11 September 1904 Wiesloch - 14 November 1986 Karlsruhe) was a German architect. He was born in Wiesloch near Heidelberg and studied at the State Technical College (later the Fachhochschule) in Karlsruhe from 1924 to 1928 and the Technical University (today the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), until May 1933. He was made head of the architectural office at Hermann Alker before leaving to set up his own office in Karlsruhe in 1937. Later thet year he was appointed Professor of Architecture at the State Technical College. His first major commission was the conversion of a Karlsruhe building to be a Nazi publishing house in 1939. In 1942 he opened a second office in Strasbourg, where he was commissioned to construct a new administrative building and to redesign the Senate Council Chamber for the University of Strasbourg. After the war he worked on the reconstruction of industry, particularly on the FAG Kugelfischer factories in Schweinfurt. His major achievement, in collaboration with the engineer Ulrich Finsterwalder, was the design and construction in 1953 of the Schwarzwaldhalle in Karlsruhe, which has the first hanging paraboloid roof in reinforced concrete to be constructed in Europe. From 1955 to his death, he supervised the development of Karlsruhe’s nuclear research centre, including the research reactor, the central administrative building, the college of nuclear technology, the information centre, the security headquarter and a variety of workshops and laboratories. Schelling's buildings help define the image of Karlsruhe. Some of them, such as the Schwarzwaldhalle, the Nancy Hall, the Chamber of Crafts and Trades and the State Insurance Institute, are listed as cultural monuments. He married interior designer Trude Schelling-Karrer, who collaborated with him in his work. In 1992, after Schelling's death, she founded the Schelling Architecture Foundation, which she ran until her own death in 2009. The Foundation awards the Schelling Architecture Award and the Schelling Architecture Theory Award every two years in his honour. (en)
