1954 Hadi Teherani was born as a son of a dealer in Teheran and came to Hamburg at the age of 6 years. After his studies at the Technological University Braunschweig, he worked in the planning office Prof. Joachim Schürmann in Cologne and as assistant lecturer for Prof. Volkwin Marg at the Technological University Aachen. In 1990 he worked as an independent architect in Cologne and in parallel started a boutique, for which he created collections. With the spectacular building of a vitreous car building in Hamburg, Teherani caused a sensation. Hereupon he established together with his former school colleague Jens Bothe, and Kai Richter the office Bothe Richter Teherani (BRT) in Hamburg. Since then, Teherani has made himself a famous name as a creative head and media conscious leader.
Aside from his work for BRT, Teherani is an associate at Design Engineering B+T Partner, where he also works as product designer.
BRT has about 140 engineers, architects and interior designers as well as specialists from the graphic art, model making, construction management, project management & controlling, R&D, product design. Over the last 6 years BRT has nearly tripled the number of its employees. BRT is ranked no. 18 of the top 100 architecture agencies in Germany; baunetz.de uses the number of publications in trademagazines as a basis for this.
Unconventional buildings are the trademark of BRT. The main focus of their work is design as well as technologically innovative large projects. Examples are big office and trading projects (for example Doppel-X-Haus, police department Hamburg) or complete urban areas (Rheinauhafen Cologne) and trainstations (for example Frankfurt airport, main station Hanover and Dortmund). Smaller projects of BRTare characterised by being especially ambitious for technology and design (glass bridge C&A, Hamburg; arc of Berlin, Hamburg; manufacturing building Tobias Grau, Rellingen).
