Born in Göttingen in 1966, Mario Kahl studied landscape architecture at the Leibniz University of Hanover. From 1993 to 1997 he worked in various planning offices and at the Ruhr University in Bochum. He has been active at the bdla since 1997; first as a specialist consultant and since 2014 also in the position of deputy federal managing director.

"Never since the profession's beginnings over 100 years ago have landscape architects had such an outstanding social significance. Social neighbourhoods, resilient cities, rapidly changing cultural landscapes - there is no question that these are also unique planning tasks that need to be tackled both innovatively and creatively today and in the future. It is a pleasure, an incentive and a challenge for me to work on this together with the best landscape architects in the country in the bdla", Mario Kahl said on the occasion of his appointment.
