KOUROSH HAJIZADEH

Kourosh Hajizadeh was born on June 30th, 1975 in Tehran. He started his education in architecture in 1993 in “Islamic Azad University of Tabriz”. Iran’s culture and civilization impressed him so much that in the year 2001 he published a book called “Dooman” which was about lost culture and historical values of Tabriz which included many of his sketches on this matter, and was written in verse. He collaborated with famous and important architects such as “Bahram Shirdel” and “Seyyed Hadi Mirmiran” from 2002 to 2007. After many experiences he founded his personal office called “Hajizadeh & Associates”.

By reason of his distinguished mentality he participated in various competitions, and the result was winning various titles in more than 30 architectural competitions.

In 2013 he won “ the Architect of the Year ” prize in Middle East Architect Award 2013 and Architect Magazine selected him as one of the ” 50 Most Influential People ” in architecture of Middle East.

Currently, Kourosh Hajizadeh is studying PH.D in architecture in “Islamic Azad University, Science and Research Campus” in Tehran. He has also been teaching for 14 years in a number of universities such as “Tehran University” and “University of Science and Technology”. He has also had several lectures on his architectural works and the design process in his works.

AMIR HOSSEIN HAJIZADEH

Amir Hossein Hajizadeh was born on August 3rd, 1990 in Tabriz, Iran. After finishing high school, he entered “Soore University of Art And Architecture” to study bachelors in architecture. From the first year of his studies he started to work at “Hajizadeh and Associates” temporarily, and those years of activity has propelled him to became the lead architect at this office since 2013.

His major attention on creating a dialogue between people and city, and amongst people with each other has evolved to develop projects with cultural and public approaches in the body of his works; in a way that “atmosphere”, as the most critical element, experience a sort of change in its base nature in each and every portion of time and place. Moreover, interactions among people would lead to create an “EVENT”.

Also, his impressive focus on designing an atmosphere-oriented process considering function regardless of formal aspects of a project, results in presenting the project in a way that it illustrates the nature of the vernacular context.

“Event”, the inseparable part of his notions, plays the leading role in all his works, whether architectural or other fields of art. The challenge of shaping an event in the audience’s mind categorizes his works as conceptual art, not only to perceive the process but also to encounter the artist’s school of thought. Parallel universe, the objects’ look towards the environment, time and surrounding factors in general, has grabbed his attention during the recent years. Read More

IDEOLOGY

Hajizadeh & Associates” architectural studio was founded in 2008 by the aim of creating a logical relation between people and the city in a local context, and with an international language of art and in this regard has gained many precious experiences.

Currently there are 15 employees working in the studio, however, the number be increase or decrease depending on the number of ongoing projects and the amount of work to do.

The most of much importance experience among many other experiences at this studio is participating in numerous architectural competitions in Iran and abroad as well.

Continuous participating in architectural competitions is significant for this studio, not only for the aim of being the winner in a competition, but also for problematizing the context. So there’s a continuous route and a special connecting line between all approaches and projects, and various forms and projects are formed on the basis of a general idea that leads to various and different strategies. Analysis process is based on episteme of one main goal, which is “Passing the Bounding Variegation of Populism”, and reaching to the active limit of the project. So environmental elements such as context, people,  social texture (structure), climate, and also finding an answer for what a client wants, are considered in an ecologic, culture-oriented design. What makes architectural competitions exciting to us is a pedagogical attempt and experiment for compiling a process and being a compiler. The aim of participating in this competition is an endeavor for developing another connection between these works. Presenting styles of this studio are expanded tools that include elements as active members of environmental icons. So in a genealogical study, the relation between them contains a general idea; “Passing from (through) Public and Massive Elements of Environment to reach the Individuality and Compiling of Interactive Space”.

 On the other hand, since being praised as the “Architect of the Year” in the Middle East Architect Awards 2013, our approach to architecture has transformed into a theory that is summarized in a sentence below:

“Not only form follows function, but also form follows the space which is created by an event.”

Therefore, form has lost its previous significance today, however, displaying it seems to be inevitable. Since form is the final product. Even though, it is nothing more than a claim for presence.

The importance of social and cultural topics on one side and creating a highlighted connection with context on the other side, are the main obsessions along the design process of our latest projects.
