|Nima earned his professional degree at the Syracuse University School of Architecture, with honors in thesis design. |
He founded ONY Architecture, LLC. In 2004 and established the studio at 118 South Street in 2005. Prior to ONY, Nima was a partner of a design/build studio called Modus51, a project manager and designer at Payette Associates and Office dA in Boston, and a designer at Provencher-Roy Architects in Montreal.
His 14 years of architectural experience encompass residential, commercial, educational, health care, and corporate types.
In addition to practicing architecture, Nima is also involved in the education and development of young designers through teaching, advising, and participating on the thesis committee as well as design classes at the Boston Architectural College. He critiques for student design reviews at the BAC, Roger Williams University, Syracuse University, and Wentworth University.
Nima continually participates in national, and international architectural design competitions, and has been recognized and shortlisted in two competitions; The Grand Egyptian Museum Competition, and the Sufi Order Spiritual Center Competition.
He believes strongly that in order to be a good architect and designer, one needs to have experience and knowledge in materials, construction, and the entire building process. This kind of understanding results in quality made structures and interiors that intelligently respond to needs and work seamlessly together. Nima’s consideration of the entire project often leads him to design exclusive furniture for his clients.
