A reception, lecture, and discussion with Nima Javidi and Behnaz Assadi of JA Architecture Studio

Helms Design Center 8745 Washington Boulevard, Culver City, CA

JA Architecture Studio, a Toronto-based practice led by Iranian-Canadian architect Nima Javidi and landscape designer Behnaz Assadi, combines the rootedness of a local architecture firm with the broad interests of an international design studio. From small to medium sized buildings that confront detail-level building constraints to ambitious international competitions, the studio’s work tries to find meaningful tangencies between iconographic, geometrical and formal properties of architecture of different backgrounds and invests in inventing new architectural hybrids as responses to the diverse realities of 21st century cities.
