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.

In his architectural experiences his significant aim is to localize architecture, and to connect architecture with people and the city by the language of world contemporary art.
