SalonGespräch Altstadtküste „Einfach Grün: Architektur im Klimawandel“


Podiumsdiskussion mit Impulsreferaten zu Gestaltungsstrategien für Architektur und Stadt im Klimawandel
Dienstag, 22. November 2022 um 19 Uhr im AIT-ArchitekturSalon Hamburg mit Impulsvorträgen von Christian Bergmann (Hadi Teherani Architects, DE-Hamburg), Julian Weyer (C.F. Møller Architects, DK-Aarhus) und Ole Schrøder (Tredje Natur, DK-Kopenhagen).

Das Salongespräch Altstadtküste „Einfach Grün: Gestaltungsstrategien für Architektur und Stadt im Klimawandel“ widmet sich der Frage welche Rolle Architekt*innen einnehmen können um die Stadtgestalt konsequent und kompromisslos an die Belastungen des Klimawandels anzupassen – als wichtigen Beitrag zur Verbesserung der Lebensqualität im urbanen Raum. Drei international für ihre wegweisenden Projekte bekannte Büros zeigen am Beispiel unterschiedlicher Projekte, wie beispielhafte und zukunftsweisende Beiträge zur Anpassung der Kommunen, ihrer Stadtteile und Quartiere an den Klimawandel realisiert werden können.


W3D – the new 3d printed stool for WAGNER LIVING by Hadi Teherani Design


Iconic design meets groundbreaking production technology. In collaboration with the #wagnerdesignlab team, Hadi Teherani has placed ergonomic sitting in a completely new context and redefined the boundaries of design – with the help of the 3D printing process, 3-dimensional movable active stools are created in series production in our production plant in Langenneufnach, precisely adapted to every body size. Ecologically well thought-out, made of 100 % organic plastic and recyclable. And the highlight – Wagner also offers a new ergonomic upgrade for all movement enthusiasts.

Baden Architecture Prize: Hadi Teherani wins in the prestige category Corporate Architecture with the new Volksbank Freiburg


12 categories, 181 entries, and more than 22,800 votes: The best architectural projects in Baden honoured at grand gala with roughly 250 guests attending.





The big winners of the Baden Architecture Prize 2022 are Volksbank Freiburg and the architectural bureau centred around Hadi Teherani. They won the “BADAP ’22” for the new Volksbank-Areal complex across from the central train station in Freiburg in what is referred to as a “prestige category”: Corporate Architecture. More than 4,000 votes were submitted online beforehand for this category alone.


Inaugurated in 2021, the building complex was honoured on Saturday at the second grand BADAP Gala held at the event location Europäisches Forum am Rhein. Among those attending were honorary patron Frank Scherer, prize founder Jürgen Grossmann, the members of the jury chaired by Dr Fred Gresens, as well as a number of prize-presenting speakers and sponsors. “The new structural complex that marks the cityscape is simultaneously a gateway for travellers by train and a calling card for the city,” the jury stated in its reasoning for nomination. “The architecture is compelling, all the way to the interior furnishings and product design.” Mr Grossmann, the initiator of the Baden Architecture Prize, praised the project as well: “With Volksbank-Areal, a construction project has prevailed in the online voting that represents Baden more than successfully. Terrific modern architecture that reflects the spirit of a modern, self-confident Black Forest metropolis.”


The voting public and jury awarded prizes to Baden’s best architecture in 12 categories. The winners included the hyper-modern vehicle registration office in Lahr (Caruso Architekten), the annex and inter alia museum-like conversion of the historic circular kiln in Zell am Harmersbach (wwg-architekten BDA), and the church pavilion by Justin Vogel (Young Talent Award, endowed with EUR 2,000 in prize money),   assembled and dismantled for a horticultural show. And not only the architects were honoured: the builders were, too. They received a trophy in the shape of an engraved aluminium plaque which can be mounted onto the building.


The expert jury for the BADAP was composed of architects, designers, engineers and trade journalists from Germany, France and the Netherlands, and included

Claude Denu (Denu et Paradon, Strasbourg), Barbara Friedrich, Peter Ippolito (Ippolito Fleitz Group, Stuttgart), Silvia Olp (Verein zur Förderung von Architektur, Engineering und Design, Stuttgart), Astrid Piber (UNStudio, Amsterdam), Knut Stockhusen (Schlaich Bergermann Partner, Stuttgart, New York, Shanghai), Dr. Ing. Fred Gresens (District Chairman of the Chamber of Architects Baden-Württemberg,  Southern Baden) as its presiding juror, and the Chief District Administrator of the District of Ortenau, Frank Scherer, as honorary patron for the BADAP.

U5 Groundbreaking: Kick-off for a new era


Vision is turning into reality. Precisely one year to the day following the planning approval decision granted for the first construction phase, the U5 is celebrating one of its key milestones: The festive groundbreaking marks the official start of construction work on the new underground U5 line. And consequently begins the next stage of rapid transit expansion in Hamburg, which is an integral component towards achieving a transition in mobility. The Hadi Teherani Architektur und Design Studio developed the Design Guide for the project, which illustrates the principles for designing the metro stations along the U5 line. It forms the basis for planning and serves to create a consistent recognisability factor. The metro stations are our link to the city boroughs and the people living in them. Which is why it is important that the stations are designed in a way that, on the one hand, picks up on the design specific to the U5 line, and on the other simultaneously contributes to a sense of own identity by reflecting the individual character of a given borough. “This way state-of-the-art technology attains a finely attuned level, sustainability receives a visually experienceable form of expression, and mobility is no longer merely functional but becomes an experience all by itself,” says Hadi Teherani.


Dr Peter Tschentscher, Incumbent Mayor of Hamburg: “The U5 is a central project for the Senate in order to improve mobility in Hamburg and advance climate protection. For the first time, entire boroughs of the city are obtaining a direct hook-up to the rapid transit system with which people in Hamburg are on the go: fast, comfortably, and climate-friendly. New connections and possibilities to change trains shorten the length of trips. The U5 is going to be the most modern metro line in Germany. It is run fully automated and – like all of the underground and aboveground lines in Hamburg – uses 100 % green electricity.”


Dr Anjes Tjarks, Hamburg Senator for Transportation and Mobility Transition: “The U5 line is Germany’s largest urban transport infrastructure project. We are now implementing it concretely: an idea for mobility and plans for rapid transit will turn into tracks and stations. The U5 decisively strengthens the rapid transit network as the backbone for mobility transition in Hamburg. It’s the only way we will be able to make sustainable mobility possible for thousands of people on a daily basis, shorten travel times, develop whole urban districts better or even open them up for the first time as regards public transport, redesign main routes and substantially relieve the burden on our climate. The U5 line is going to set new standards in the process – in terms of technology, digitalisation, urban mobility, comfort and climate-friendly construction.”
