Beutler, who studied sculpture in Frankfurt and Glasgow, takes an experimental approach to materials, methods, and locations, creating playful spaces that arouse fresh sensations in viewers. In 2015, at an exhibition at the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum für Gegenwart, or Berlin’s Museum for Contemporary Art, he was recognized for his magnificent installation completed with the cooperation of many people that featured a colossal revolving architectural structure and many sculptures or structures that combined a variety of materials and methods. His works have been exhibited around the world, including at the Gwangju Biennale (2006）, the Venice Biennale of Architecture （2010）, and the Singapore Biennale （2011）. For KENPOKU ART 2016, he is planning a large-scale installation using local materials and traditional Japanese methods.
