With eight years under his belt at the Tehran-based architecture firm Hajizadeh & Associates, founded by his brother Kourosh in 2008, Iranian architect Amir Hossein Hajizadeh has served as lead architect since 2013. Through design, Hajizadeh aims to create events, or interactions within communities and dialogue between people and place. His context-oriented design process results in projects that reflect the vernacular context of their environment, and the challenge of shaping an event for the end-user has allowed Hajizadeh to categorise his work – whether architectural or other – as conceptual art. His recent projects include the renovation of Saneyi House in Tehran, Tomb of Martyrs in Ahwaz, the rehabilitation of the Oudlajan neighbourhood in Tehran, and the interior design of Book Garden, also in Tehran. Upcoming projects for the practice include a five-star hotel in Mashhad, a cement factory in Zabol and two villas, all of which are all in Iran.
