The conference will gather stakeholders and participants from various sectors of society with the aim of sharing knowledge, experiences and solutions.
Rahel Belatchew is the founder of Belatchew Arkitekter, an architectural firm in Stockholm working within a wide range of projects, from urban planning and housing to offices and public buildings. She also runs the studio Belatchew Labs that works with experimental projects that first and foremost aim to investigate and test new approaches and solutions to urban and architectural issues.
The exhibition Woodland Sweden shows the rapid development in innovative contemporary architecture, with examples of Swedish excellence in wooden construction; from the exotic wilderness of a ‘naturum’ (natural habitat information centre) in Lapland to the architecture of a daycare centre in a suburb of Stockholm.
The events are part of Equal Spaces – a long term exchange between Sweden and Turkey that focuses on the city and public space through architecture and design. The project aims to open up new dialogues, transfer knowledge and create innovative solutions that contribute to a smart, creative and inclusive society.
