Rahel Belatchew is the founder of Belatchew Architects. Her architecture can be best understood as an innovative attitude rather than a certain style. The projects are based on careful analysis and reflect an attitude that treats each one as unique, with an individual – often sculptural – expression. There is consequently no general ‘building kit’ that the office utilises, and the results express the significant element of playfulness. The office, based in Stockholm, is also known for the experimental studio Belatchew Labs.
This monograph covers several key projects of Belatchew’s architecture —such as the StrawScraper, the BuzzBuilding, Stockholm Loop, Discus, and Tensta Torn. It also includes texts by Daniel Golling, Paul Finch and Martin Rörby, as well as an interview with Rahel Belatchew by Nils Forsberg.
