Hadi Teherani – born in Tehran in 1954, grew up in Hamburg – is an extremely
productive and diverse, internationally awarded German architect and designer. His
work is executed regardless of borders in every respect, transcending nationalities
and specialist disciplines. The projects target atmospheric charisma, emotional
urgency and an ecologically sound sustainability that is already laid out in the
design. The first “green“ railway station in Germany at Frankfurt Airport and the
Cologne “Crane Houses” on the banks of the River Rhine have become effective
landmarks to a large extent like many international projects. In his unusually farreaching competence from architecture to urban planning, to interior and product
design, compositions succeed in which all elements interact harmoniously. Abu
Dhabi, Berlin, Dubai, Hamburg, Istanbul, Copenhagen, Rome and Tehran are some of the metropolitan cities for which plans are being drawn up, as well as Moscow and
Mumbai. The e-bike, the conference table, leather seating furniture, a modular kitchen, lights, showroom and flagship stores likewise belong to the catalogue of works, just as highris buildings, corporate centres, council offices, shopping worlds, stock markets railway stations, schools and universities. In recent years particularly innovativ concepts for sustainable urban residential construction have been developed and realised.
Philosophy: "Good design combines timeless appearance with technical innovation, renders traditional materials into a modern language of shapes and forms, and supplies the best possible draft. To extract the design draft from the material and not impose the draft onto the material involved, that is the great artistry in designing."
