With a lab dedicated to the most cutting-edge, avant-garde of designs and a solutions-focused approach to architecture, Belatchew Architects are among the rising stars of the sought-after architecture firms in Scandinavia. “Architecture is about so much more than just design,” says founder Rahel Belatchew Lerdell. Belatchew Architects are not just nominated for a World Architecture Festival (WAF) award. Founder Belatchew Lerdell also sits on one of the juries and will give a talk at the festival. “We’re looking at how we can utilise and recycle structures in cities,” she says about BuzzBuilding, the experimental creation that will make the topic of her talk.
