The work of Studio Razavi Architecture rests on a fundamental principal: the mediation between engineering & architectural cultures. It is our belief that successful designs can only materialize by fully synthesizing building technology and architectural sensitivity. Our approach to space is hence determined by a rigorous understanding of existing relationships between technique and culture, free of stylistic limitations, open to context. Our work has been shown at the Pavillon de l’Arsenal in Paris and published in DETAIL magazine, Architecture Créé, d’architectures and The Plan.
