- Hadi Teherani as a guest at Engel & Völkers: The Market Center Elbe invited the star architect to a real estate talk at the new headquarters in HafenCity.

Hadi Teherani at Engel & Völkers

Hadi Teherani is an established figure in the architectural world. Countless striking buildings in metropolises all over the world can be traced back to the work of the architect, who was born in Tehran. Teherani presented to an interested audience during a real estate talk in a relaxed atmosphere in the atrium of Engel & Völkers Headquarters where he gets his inspiration from and how a vision turns into a finished object. After a brief welcome by Philipp Niemann, Managing Director of the Engel & Völkers Market Center Elbe, Hadi Teherani led an excerpt of his previous works and explained his "holistic approach", the holistic claim with which he creates his works. According to the architect, the city, architecture, interior design and product design are atmospherically inseparable and therefore cannot be designed separately.

So it came at no surprise that in addition to striking buildings such as the Kranhäuser in Cologne or the Dockland office building at Hamburg harbour, the German-Iranian's portfolio also included numerous pieces of furniture, textile coverings and decorative interior objects. 

Architecture as a link between past and future

Following the lecture, the audience had the opportunity to ask questions about Tehrani's work. The architect answered the particularly piquant question from the audience as to which building of the last ten years he would most like to have demolished with his understanding of the connection between architecture, history and memory culture. According to Teherani, a city without a history in the form of architecture is lifeless - but a city must also provide space to tell new stories. In this respect, it is not always an advantage to cling to old architecture without creating space for new living areas and useful space. As an example, he cited the Elbphilharmonie, whose construction was undoubtedly controversial in the early days, but has now become a landmark of Hamburg. 

The evening ended with a relaxed get-together with drinks and finger food, during which the audience had the opportunity to talk to the architect and representatives of the Market Center Elbe in person.
