Mike Baur considers stability, weight, and permanence to be the most important things to concentrate on for design. Architectural designs and landscaping use shape and design of these things to make the art that we all love. Mike Baur’s story is an interesting one to consider as we take a look at his dreams and accomplishments.
Industrial materials have always been a fascination of his. He began by getting his BFA from the University of Arkansas in 1973, then he continued on to get his Graduate degree from the University of Illinois in sculpture. That is a unique degree for an architect, and one that one would imagine was not a bad choice for him. His fame with steel design is infamous.He has been creating visual themes for 40 years now. He has gotten really good at it. He has expressed that the three-dimensional art of a building or landscaping is what expresses his ideas. It’s an art form.
His creations have been added in many prestigious locations too. He has a sculpture in Spain that won an award back after graduation from college. Springfield, Missouri has another one of his as well. He was represented by Sonia Zaks between the years of 1981 to 2005. After that, he was represented by Harris Works of Art in 2007. His entire career has been one that was shaped by design. Perhaps that is why he ditched his career to create start-ups. His love of design has made him one of the greats in his field.
His brilliant creations have become immortalized now in the field of finance through his ability to connect the two world into one. That is what happened when he created Swiss Start Up Factory, he was ready to take his genius and place it in the hands of that creation, which has become a leading player in the top Fortune 500 companies today. The future will be exciting for him and all that he creates. Perhaps more start-up companies are in the future for his work. Only time can say what will happen, but it is exciting to see.
