Live and act

After the Second World War , in which he lost a leg, Glatzer studied architecture from 1946 to 1950 at the Technical University of Berlin a . a. with Hans Freese . At that time his professor was also the rector of the university, who gave his pupil a first job at the Berlin Senate in the planning office. Glatzer stayed there for almost three years and then moved to the federal agency, the Federal Building Directorate (BBD), which was newly founded in 1950, and later took over the management of the BBD's planning group for the expansion of the capital in Bonn.

His first task here was the planning and implementation of the Freese draft for the Foreign Office , which he completed in 1955 - after Freese's death. Robert Glatzer stayed in Bonn and then took over the construction management of all new construction measures by the federal government.

In 1968 the Stieldorf planning group near Bonn was founded. Two years later, Glatzer resigned from the civil service and joined the planning group. Glatzer was in charge of the Stieldorf planning group for the competition designs in 1971 for the Bonn Chancellery (with Georg Pollich ) and in 1974 for the ZDF broadcasting center in Mainz (with Peter Türler ). Also worth mentioning is z. B. the group of houses Panoramaweg in the Siebengebirge . Later, until his death in 1995, he shifted his focus to the renovation of historic buildings.
