Hermann Tilke

A German architect known for his work on motor racing circuits. He established Tilke Engineers and Architects in 1984 and today it has 2 offices in Germany and an office in Bahrain. It could be said that Tilke has a monopoly on designing new circuits for F1; those circuits include Sepang (1998), Bahrain (2004), Shanghai (2004), Istanbul (2005), Singapore (2008), Valencia (2008), Abu Dhabi (2009), Cape town (2009), and South Korea (2010). In addition to those circuits the office made many adjustments to existing circuits and high speed roads in Nunburgring, Barcelona, Japan and many more. Here are some of their projects in Bahrain, I can't say that I am fond of all of them... aside from the BIC and RUF, I can't see anything special about the other concept designs.
