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.
